Coopersville schools honor top graduates


COOPERSVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- The Coopersville school district honored its top graduates Monday night at the Excellence in Education dinner. It recognized students graduating in the top ten percent.

Each of those students had a moment on stage with a teacher of his or her choosing who has in some way been an inspiration.

The event, at the Coopersville Farm Museum, was put on by the Grand Haven and Coopersville Community Foundations.

WZZM 13's Nick LaFave delivered the keynote address.


Lost for nine years, Mother's Day gift is returned


COOPERSVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- It was a Mother's Day mystery you helped solve.

WZZM 13 reunited a local mom with a handmade trinket, having only a few clues to work with.

A WZZM 13 employee found the laminated bookmark at a Coopersville gas station several years ago. The bookmark appears to be made with finger paint and includes the photo of a young boy.

On the back of the bookmark it reads: "Happy Mother's Day love Graydon 2006."

After only 16 minutes posted on the WZZM13 Facebook page, his sister saw the bookmark and helped us get it back into her mother's hands.

First Graduates of Kenowa Hills Middle College - 2015

The Board of Education of Kenowa Hills Public Schools is pleased to announce the savings of college expenses valued at $512,126 by the first Kenowa Hills High School/Davenport University Middle College graduating class. The first students scheduled to complete the program this spring have participated in classes valued from $30,361 to $35,076.

From Allison Polkowski, a student who will be graduating in May. “For the past three years, Middle College has impacted me in a way I had never considered. Taking a blended schedule of high school and college classes simultaneously has challenged, driven and progressed me more than many students the same age. I am incredibly confident in the interpersonal, professional and medical skills that I have gained in this period of time. I have also discovered possibilities for future careers with no college debt.”
