Milford High School students with Commissioners Bob Hoffman and Philip Weipert.
Critical thinking and civic engagement took center stage during the Oakland County Board of Commissioners’ annual Youth in Government Day, held May 15th.
The event, which drew high school students from across the county, featured speakers, mock debates, and engaging demonstrations centered on Oakland County’s role in the lives of its citizens.
Congratulations and high fives to the players and coaches of Clarkston and Orchard Lake St. Mary’s High Schools for their victories in the Michigan High School Football Championships.
The Clarkston Wolves earned their second straight Division 1 state title beating Saline 33-25. The game was the 27th consecutive victory for the Wolves, longest active run in the state.
Orchard Lake St Mary’s Eaglets topped Muskegon 7-0 to take the Division 3 title. This was the 6th state championship for the Eaglets, the others occurring in 1977, 1994, 1999, 2000, and 2011.
We’d also like to give a ‘pat-on-the-back’ to the twenty-two other Oakland County teams that were in the journey to become a state champion.
