Tina Jackson (B.S. ‘03, M.Ed. ‘04) hosted her 12th annual “Surviving the Game” conference in St. Paul in July 2017. The conference is held to help end the cycle of poverty for kids in the Minneapolis community, where Jackson grew up. More than 200 students attended the conference, where they learn financial literacy, go to a Lynx game, and meet the players. Over the years, the conference, “Surviving the Game” has been able to give out seven scholarships to students.
