Grand Blanc Schools Honored by Governor Whitmer and the Michigan Community Service Commission

On Thursday, September 5th, Superintendent of Grand Blanc Community Schools, Clarence Garner, traveled to the Detroit Opera House for a ceremony honoring the recipients of the Michigan Community Service Commission and Governor Whitmer's "Governor's Service Awards". 

Mr. Garner took the stage with Governor Whitmer and representatives of three other organizations presented with the "Education Service Leader" award.

The United Way of Genesee County has been instrumental in assisting with many of the community service projects taken on by our staff and students and nominated our district for the "Education Service Leader" award. Their organization was also recognized with an "Outstanding Volunteer Program" award for all of their amazing work in the region. 

Congratulations to all the winners at the Governor's Service Awards and many thanks to Governor Whitmer, the Michigan Community Service Commission, Representative Sneller, the Positivity Project, the United Way, and especially all of our staff and students that have made Grand Blanc Community Schools a district recognized for the #otherpeoplematter mindset. We are proud to watch our students develop stronger relationships with each other and the community.

Local State Representative Tim Sneller presented Mr. Garner with a State of Michigan "Special Tribute" to recognize our district's community service work at the Grand Blanc Chamber of Commerce meeting on Friday, September 6.

These awards can proudly be shared by all our Bobcats for going above and beyond to improve our schools, our community and the State of Michigan.
