HOLLY, Michigan - While many will be taking family vacations and spending time relaxing in the sun this summer, a few select Holly High School students will encounter a summer adventure they are soon not to forget.   Today, they’re eager, energetic and outgoing students at Holly High Schoo, but in the years to come, these individuals could become our future leaders making policy decisions in Lansing, Washington, and around the world.  A highly motivated group of seven students have been selected to participate in three different programs designed to educate them about life in public service.

Juniors Heidi Martin, Carly Postma, Grayson Shell, were selected to attend the 70th Session of the Michigan American Legion Auxiliary Girls State being conducted on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing June 17-23.  They will join other young ladies from across the state in learning about the functions of our government.
