Robotics competition a plus for area

This week’s bouquets go to:

From Vickie Micheau, Escanaba:

“The Delta County Commerce Center salutes the efforts of the Escanaba School District and its staff for hosting a phenomenal event last weekend at the High School. The first FIRST Robotics Competition ever held in the Upper Peninsula was well organized and ran smoothly thanks to the many volunteers. You truly showed the rest of Michigan how our community works together to host first-class events. Thank you.”

From Marilyn Albrecht, Gladstone:

“I’m sending a bouquet to the robotics team and advisors for the FIRST robotic district event at the Escanaba Area High School, on Saturday. What a joy to see the dedication of the teams, advisors, school faculty, parents and volunteers.

Such a nice event for my three grandsons. Very proud of the Gladstone Robotics Team. Congratulations to Escanaba Area High School for sponsoring this great event.”

Each Saturday the Daily Press salutes individuals and groups from our area who have had a very positive impact on the way we live.
