Northeast Michigan Students Attend Legislative Day
Two students in the Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates (JMG) program coordinated by Michigan Works! Northeast Consortium attended the Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates Legislative Day on February 28 in Lansing. Over 125 students from across the state attended the event. While in Lansing, JMG students Will Coggins (Presque Isle Academy) and Trentin Montgomery (Alpena High School) met with their legislators, networked with other JMG students, and toured the Capital. Trentin and Will were able to meet and talk with Senator Jim Stamas and Representative Sue Allor about their experiences and involvement in the JMG program. In fact, Representative Allor opened the House session by introducing both students and Michigan Works! Northeast Consortium as special guests to the House.
