MSFAA Memory - Shared by Jim Moored

Just an interesting "tidbit" from the past - in a time long ago - in another universe !!! Okay…no Star Wars BUT, before most current financial aid professionals were born, I became MSFAA President. 1980 - 1981 (who remembers)?

I became the first and only International President in MSFAA history. Elected by Michigan schools but monitored by one very tight MSFAA treasurer, one William (Bill) Munsell then Director of Financial Aid at Lake State, we ended up at a Holiday Inn in Windsor, Canada for my inauguration (I think the rooms were $2 a night cheaper In Canada).

Create new memories by registering for winter conference today!

    This is a GREAT memory! Talk about defying borders...MSFAA was started in Indiana and you were inaugurated in Canada! Thanks for sharing, Jim.

    Didn't make it to the conference that year, but I remember the issue about having the conference in Canada! Now it costs about $5 each way for tolls and you have to have a passport or special driver's license, so the extra costs outweigh the benefits now!
