Doug DeYoung, Public Affairs Area Manager for Consumers Energy, presents a $2,500 Pathways for Youth grant to Barb while grant-originator Michelle looks on.
In January of 2015 Michelle Russell and Tim Krause submitted a grant application to Consumers Energy for its Pathways for Youth program.  They were advised at the time that it could up to a year for such a request to be reviewed and acted upon. Now the grant has come to fruition, meaning that Benzie Central students will have the opportunity to intern with local employers this summer.
