While visiting his parents' hometown of Asmara, Eritrea, Oxon Hill alum Mekonen Andemichael was involved in a tragic car accident that left him in critical condition.

Andemichael is currently in a coma with several live threatening injuries. The healthcare system in Eritrea is not advanced enough to give him the life saving treatment that he needs. All donations will go directly to flying Andemichael to Dubai where he can be treated and toward other medical expenses.

Please share and contribute whatever you can to save the life of a fellow clipper.

High school is the time to think and ponder about what exactly it is that you would like to do with your life. Some decide to go into the armed forces or begin work, while others decide to further their education and go to a college or a university. Those that choose to further their education undergo a very scarey process: the college application process. - See more at: http://www.ohhssearchlight.com/opinion/2014/01/27/through-the-eyes-of-a-senior-recommendations/#sthash.PJuPpAE3.dpuf
