Midland Daily News: Glenn meets with Michigan Youth Challenge Academy graduates

From the Midland Daily News:

LANSING — State representative-elect Gary Glenn, R-Midland, after meeting at the state capital in Lansing with three Midland young people who are cadets with the Michigan Youth Challenge Academy, is urging parents of at-risk teens to consider the program administered by the Michigan National Guard.

The Academy is currently taking applications for its next class starting Jan. 18, 2015.

'I’m proud of Sousha, Andrew, and Lujuan for overcoming past challenges and committing themselves to learning the self-discipline and job skills necessary to succeed in life,' Glenn stated in a media release. 'They need our encouragement and support, and the Michigan National Guard deserves our gratitude for helping these Midland youth and others like them across the state turn their lives around.'

Andrew Carter, of Midland, was among those who graduated from the Academy last Saturday. Andrew’s mother, Kay Carter, also of Midland, called MYCA, 'an amazing military-type academic program that has changed the course of his life through very hard work and determination.'"
