Monday, April 17th, 2017, Houghton Lake Community Education
On Monday, April 17th, 2017, Houghton Lake Community Education had the pleasure of hosting a visit from Senator Darwin Booher. Senator Booher represents the 35th district in the State of Michigan, which includes Benzie, Crawford, Kalkaska, Lake, Leelanau, Manistee, Mason, Missaukee, Ogemaw, Osceola, Roscommon, and Wexford counties.
Booher chairs the Senate Banking and Financial Institutions Committee and serves as a member of the Agriculture and Education committees. He also serves as a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, where he chairs the Capital Outlay and Community Colleges subcommittees. Booher also serves on the Appropriations subcommittee for the departments of Natural Resource and General Government and serves as Assistant Majority Caucus Whip for the Republican Caucus.
Student Services Coordinator, Melisa Akers, visited Senator Booher in Lansing during MACAE Advocacy Day in March. During that visit, Senator Booher expressed interest in visiting Houghton Lake’s Adult and Alternative Education program. The senator visited each of the classrooms and talked to the students about their future plans, what circumstances landed them in an alternative education program, why they were not successful in a traditional educational environment, and the job outlook in the state of Michigan. The students were very receptive to the senator’s visit and welcomed the opportunity to speak with him about the current hot topics in education and the future of Michigan’s job market.
