My Town: Local representative honored as Afterschool Champion

EAST GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—A lawmaker from West Michigan is being honored for championing support for afterschool programs and the children who participate in them.

Rep. Peter MacGregor and Rep. Rashida Tlaib were recently honored as Afterschool Champions during a “Breakfast of Champions” by the Afterschool Alliance in Washington, D.C.  Both state representatives worked together last year to generate bi-partisan support to restore critical afterschool funding in the Department of Human Services budget.  MacGregor and Tlaib were also instrumental in securing funding for a summer learning loss study by Michigan State University researchers.

MacGregor represents East Grand Rapids and the townships of Cannon, Courtland, Nelson, Oakfield, Plainfield, Spencer and Grand Rapids.
