WOW…What a day! Disability Network West Michigan in partnership with Michigan Rehabilitation Services had its very first, successful DisCOVER YOUTH TRANSITION CONFERENCE at the Newaygo County Education Service Center. There were over 60 students from Newaygo, Fremont, White Cloud and Hesperia in attendence.
Our thanks to all involved including Juan Herrera, owner of Sweet Tire; Ben Post, MRS Youth Counselor; Andrea Scheidel, Secondary Special Education Supervisor & Transition Coordinator, NCRESA; Amanda Van Tubergen, Employment Navigation Guide DNWM; and our wonderful youth panelists Jordan, Brandon and Ann. Thank you also to our Youth Transition Team, Danielle Bennett, Ja-Relle Thomas, Leslie Green and Nate Tabler for helping make this all possible.
