“Congratulations to these outstanding Wolverines – we’re so proud of your dedication to science and this success,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said. “STEM learning is a priority for our schools district, and our middle schools all are currently working toward national STEM certification. Congratulations and thank you to Ms. Frederick and Ms. Miller for leading this team and everything you do to help our students achieve.”
