On January 20th, the 'Get Your Dream' Event was held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, organized by the West Michigan AmeriCorps Collaborative in partnership with Wrinkle Creative, BL²END, and WGVU Public Media's Engage Education committee.
As part of the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day event, we heard from students, mentors, community leaders, and business owners as the discussion about the state of Grand Rapids Public Schools ensued after the WGVU film, Get Your Diploma. Get Your Dream. screened.
