Michael serves as Global Impact's High School Programming Director. He's many things: a Wright State graduate (M.Ed), an appreciator of good music, a student, an educator, a dog enthusiast (shout out to Jimmy), a bookworm, a movie goer, and a former member of the Burger King Kid’s Club. Currently, he is living in a house with his wife (or soon to be wife, depending on when you read this), right back at WSU to obtain his CC+ certification. The learning never stops for Mr. Payne. Ever.
