Help get Autum Ashante Get Reinistated Back at UCONN!

Please help 13 year old prodigy, Autum Ashante get reinstated back into the University of Connecticut . Earlier this year Autum Ashante was accepted into the University of Connecticut for the fall 2011 semester. However, the University has recently rescinded their decision stating “she’s not academically ready”( the original NY Daily News article is attached below) . As an African-American female who attended the University of Connecticut , it saddens me to see my alma mater treat someone of such promise this way, especially when we live in a world, where the most celebrated African-American women are those on the reality Show, “Basketball Wives”. I feel the University of Connecticut would be ever so lucky to have a student like Ms. Ashante in their classrooms. With that being said, I have started a campaign to get Autum Ashante reinstated back at the University of Connecticut . Please sign the petition showing your support and please note if you are a UCONN student, alum or faculty member. Always remember, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste”
