The Manistique Area Schools “Gem” Alumni Association is an intentional effort to reconnect alumni with their hometown – the community, the school system, residents, students, and businesses.
Our mission is to provide information and connections to alumni from Manistique Area Schools back to those who are in the community. We will share the “what’s happening here” stories – the Who, What, Where, How and When—with those who have graduated from Manistique Area Schools. By sharing this information, we hope to help alums understand what’s happening in the Manistique area and how they might be able to help. Our alumni association will help reconnect all of us to this wonderful, magical place.
Our hope is, that by helping alums understand what’s happening in the Manistique area, some will decide to be philanthropic, some will volunteer their time, and others will offer their expertise to the conversations about the future of our hometown. There are many ways in which we alums can give back to the hometown that gave us so much when we were growing up there. Let’s start a conversation about your passions, your experience, and where you might be able to offer support.
We have many graduates from our school system who have either remained in the area, or have returned to the area. Some of these people have become engaged in the workings of the community, bringing their skills, experience, and resources to bear to create a higher quality of life for everyone. A few of these “Gems” are listed below,
We have two high school interns assisting in gathering the names and contact information for graduates of Manistique Area Schools this summer (2017). Once we have this information compiled into a database, we will begin communicating with the alums! We hope to have our first newsletter out by Labor Day, so please stay tuned!
