Love, who graduated from Siena Heights in 1993, will share her experiences during a presentation at 7 p.m. in Rueckert Auditorium. A reception will follow the program.

A former community activist, Love was elected to her first of three terms in the Michigan House of Representatives’ 10th District that represents Northwest Detroit and Redford Township. During her tenure, she has held numerous leadership posts, including serving as the Democratic Caucus vice chair, executive vice chair of the Michigan Legislative Black Caucus, co-chair of the bipartisan and bicameral Michigan Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus and treasurer of the Progressive Women’s Legislative Caucus.

In her first term, Love was the first woman, first African American and first freshman representative in her caucus to introduce legislation that was signed into law as a public act (PA 68). She currently sits on the House Appropriations Committee as well as Appropriations Subcommittees on Health and Human Services and Transportation.

The event is free and open to the community. For more information on 100th anniversary events, visit 100.sienaheights.edu.
