Schools in Bentley, Davison, Genesee County, Marlette, Midland, and Tuscola County schools are each getting a $2,500 grant for their work in creating opportunities and helping build their student’s futures.

  • The Wolverine Educational Center’s Physical Education program through the Tuscola Intermedia School District has students work on building confidence, developing skills, and achieving success in a supportive environment.
