Meemic Grants Benefits Alanson, Newberry Students

Congratulations, Beth Ristow, on your Meemic Foundation grant. Beth is a teacher at Alanson Public School in Alanson. Doug Laprade of the Laprade Agency in Sault Sainte Marie and Gary Lesky, formerly of the Lesky Agency, presented Beth with her award. She'll use the check to purchase hard hats and music stands to help encourage her fourth- and fifth-grade boys to learn music by playing boomwhackers on their heads. The stands will also be used for other music students.

Doug also presented a grant to principal Stacy Price on behalf of Erin McNamara of Tahquamenon Area Schools in Newberry. Erin plans to buy more books to greatly expand her classroom library.
