Congratulations to Bates Academy students Kayla Tate and Zharia Akeem!

According to Get Schooled, students from each Challenge school are selected to serve as Student Ambassadors. These students help promote the Challenge in their school, raise awareness of Challenge goals, increase school spirit throughout the Challenge and help their school finish at the top.
Also, Zharia Akeem, was named the MIKidsCan essay winner for her piece titled “How I Keep Myself Active.” MIKidsCan is an initiative created by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan to promote positive change in the health and well-being of Michigan youth.
