Wayne State family of grads profiled in Oakland Press feature

May 20, 2013


Bloomfield Hills mother Sabrina Shields would never have thought she would be graduating from college at the same time as her daughter, and one semester after her stepson, but the timing just worked out that way. Sabrina, 52, along with her daughter, Raycene Nevils, 26, graduated from Wayne State University with master's degrees in different subject areas. Nevils received her master of arts in language learning, with a certificate in peace and security, while Shield got her master of arts in teaching. Last December, Shields' stepson, Stephen Shields, 25, also graduated with a bachelor of science in electrical engineering from Tuskegee University in Alabama.
