Project Bold fundraiser held
Oct. 23 at the Bloomfield
Hills home of Oakland Community
College Counselor Rhonda Brown and
her husband, Dr. Morris Brown. She
chairs the Counseling Department
at OCC's Orchard Ridge Campus in
Farmington Hills.
Based at the
Orchard Ridge
Campus, Project
Bold is a thera-
peutic educational
program designed
to assist college
students who have
been diagnosed
with neurologi-
cally based learn-
ing disorders to
succeed academi-
cally. The program
was established
in 1986 by the
Orchard Ridge Campus Counseling
Department in collaboration with
Michigan Rehabilitation Services
and the Beaumont Center for Human
Development.
Among the many students who
have benefited from the program is
Dr. Robert Reid, OCC's Outstanding
Alumnus for 2007. Speaking at the
fundraiser, Reid noted that he had
been diagnosed with dyslexia in high
school. His involvement with Project
Bold enabled him to graduate with
highest honors from OCC with two

degrees — one in liberal arts, the
other in general studies. Reid contin-
ued his education at Boston College
where he earned a bachelor's degree,
with high honors, in chemistry and
biology. He attended medical school at
Wayne State University in Detroit and
completed his residency in internal
medicine at Beaumont Hospital in
Royal Oak, where he
is engaged in oncol-
ogy research while
working on a doc-
torate in molecular
biology.
"While par-
ticipating in Project
Bold, I saw many
who were helped to
overcome their lan-
guage disabilities.
It was by seeing
these others being
- Dr. Robert Reid helped that I made
my commitment to
become a physician", Reid said.
The Project Bold fundraiser was
held under the auspices of the OCC
Foundation. About $13,000 was raised
at the event, which will be used for
scholarships and the purchase of spe-
cialized learning equipment designed
to assist learning-disabled students.
Sixty students are currently enrolled
in the program.
