Ludington school superintendent Andrea Large and Mason county central schools superintendent Jeff Mount are expected to meet with parents and students this morning at the Journey school. The official word on the future of the local alternative school will be disclosed. The Journey School was set to be merged into the Gateway to Success charter school this fall. The opening of the so called "G 2 S" building has been delayed until 2016. Both superintendents are expected to contact WMOM once the official word of Journey's future has been given to the parents, students and teachers.
A dedication ceremony is scheduled for Eric Lund today. Eric will be moving into his new home that was made possible by HelpingAHero.org. Lund was severely injured by a roadside bomb explosion while fighting with the Army National guard in Afghanistan, in May of 2012, costing him his arms and other serious injuries.
The Patriot Guard Riders are scheduled to gather at Home Depot and then ride to Jebavy Drive for the ceremony.
Jebavy Drive between Jagger Road and Decker Road will be closed for the event, possibly from about 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The ceremony, scheduled for 1 p.m. Monday, will include Lee Greenwood singing his Grammy Award-winning song “God Bless the USA.”
Also Vietnam War veteran Rick Plummer, U.S. Reps. Bill Huizenga and Dan Benishek, state Sen. Darwin Booher and state Rep. Ray Franz are expected to attend the event and may speak.
