‘Lead, Kindly Light’
Student discovers bright future in Haiti
To be “educated,” means, in its Latin root, to be “led out.” Zachary Fulmer, a former education and current business major at The University of Akron, spent most of his adolescence in the darkness of solitude, a self-described loner. That is, until, following an irresistible impulse, he traveled to Haiti on a service and learning trip. There, something happened: what he calls an “epiphany,” in which the purpose of his life became as clear as the noonday sun. Now, he lives as one who has emerged from a dark cave, and into a future bright with meaning, and warm with human relationships.
