According to the MDE, the Michigan teacher of the year (MTOY) is the spokesperson for Michigan’s more than 100,000 teachers.

The MTOY attends all State Board of Education meetings as a non-voting member of the board. Additionally, the MTOY has the opportunity to meet with the state superintendent, governor of Michigan, president of the united states, and other state and national teachers of the year.

The MTOY is also Michigan’s applicant for national teacher of the year (NTOY) and attends four national conferences through the NTOY program, including attendance at Space Camp in Huntsville, Ala.

The MTOY has the opportunity through Walden University for a full scholarship to the Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership programs.

The MTOY also brings recognition to the district they represent, and has expanded opportunities for advancement in the field of education.

Public safety director asks residents to be aware of proper parking at Huron School District buildings

Huron Public Safety Director Everette Robbins

Over the past several months, the Huron Township Department of Public Safety has worked with the Huron School District to clearly post and mark legal parking areas within the school parking lots. This includes clearly marked Handicap Parking as and fire lane restricted areas required by law.

On Friday night, Aug. 31, the Huron Township Police Department issued multiple Parking and Fire Lane citations to vehicles parked in restricted areas. These parking violations create significant safety hazards for everyone attending the event.

“We do not want to have to issue parking violations to our residents or anyone attending one of our school events. However, our first priority must to be the safety of our student athletes along with those who attend any school event. If the fire lanes are not clear, we may be unable to get a Fire Truck or Ambulance to an athlete injured on the field or even a spectator in the stands when their life depends on it. Parking in unauthorized areas can also cause obstructed views which can lead to someone being struck with a vehicle while walking in the parking lot. Our only goal is to provide a safe environment for all involved.” Said Public Safety Director Everette Robbins.

Today, Sept. 4, 2018, our department received numerous complaints about parking violations at both Miller Elementary and Brown Elementary. Citizens reported numerous vehicles parked illegally not only inside the parking lots, but also on Hannan and Middlebelt Roads.

“We understand that things are hectic on the first day and that a higher number of parents than normal take their child to school. This is just a reminder to parents dropping their children off at school that they must park in designated areas. It is important that we save the handicap parking spaces available for those that need them. Again, we are urging residents to park only in legally designated parking spots.”

Dylan Offman

Comcast recently announced that it has awarded $91,000 in scholarships for the 2018-19 school year to 85 Michigan students as part of its annual Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program. Among these students is Dylan Offman, a senior at Huron High School, from New Boston, MI. The program, funded by the Comcast Foundation, is a one-time, $1,000 scholarship awarded to the best and brightest high school seniors for their community service, academic performance and leadership skills. Since 2001, more than $28 million has been awarded to nearly 27,000 high school seniors across the country as part of the Leaders and Achievers Program.

“Congratulations to the winners from across Michigan who have demonstrated leadership through their commitment to academics as well as serving their local communities,” said Tim Collins, regional senior vice president for Comcast in Michigan. “We recognize their achievements with this scholarship award, and we are encouraged by their passion and commitment to develop into tomorrow’s leaders and innovators.”

The Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program provides scholarships to students who strive to achieve their full potential, who are catalysts for positive change in their communities, who are involved in their schools, and who serve as role models for their fellow students. The philosophy behind the program is to give young people every opportunity to prepare for the future and to engage them in their communities. The program also demonstrates the importance of civic involvement and the value placed on civic involvement by the business community.
