GRAND-WHITE – Last week, Grand Blanc Community Schools Superintendent Clarence Garner visited the Detroit Opera House for a ceremony honoring the recipients of the Michigan Community Service Commission and the Governor Whitmer’s Service Awards .

Garner took the stage with Governor Whitmer and representatives of three other organizations that received the Education Service Leader award.

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

GBCS congratulated all the winners of the Governor’s Service Awards and thanked Governor Whitmer, the Michigan Community Service Commission, Representative Sneller, the Positivity Project, United Way, and in particular all of our staff and students who made Grand Blanc Community Schools in a district known for the #otherpeoplematter mindset. We are proud to see our students develop stronger relationships with each other and with the community.

Additionally, local state representative Tim Sneller presented Garner with a ‘special tribute’ from the state of Michigan to recognize GBCS’s community service work at the Grand Blanc Chamber of Commerce meeting. Friday September 6.

These awards can be proudly shared by all of our staff, students and Bobcat families for doing their best to improve our schools, our community and the state of Michigan.
