We’re excited to share that Maysen Bergerson, a senior at L'Anse Area Schools and part of our Copper Country ISD CTE Welding and Manufacturing program, earned outstanding recognition at the prestigious MITES State Competition in Gaylord, Michigan! Maysen's "Tractor, Trailer, and Excavator Model" entry brought home the blue ribbon in his category and the Wrought Metal A Divisional Award, making his project the best CTE entry across all 13 categories. It also earned the 2024 asbe Foundation Creative Design Award for the most creative project at the MITES Convention. 🌟 When asked how he felt about his achievement, Maysen summed it up in one word: "Unreal." The project used materials mostly salvaged from the scrap bin.

We're thrilled to share our new composting project is finally underway, thanks to a generous Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative grant! Our very first composting bin has been proudly set up along the wooded edge of the CCISD offices in Hancock. Two more are coming soon. Composting is fantastic because it converts kitchen and garden waste into rich, nutritious soil, helping plants grow healthier and stronger. It also reduces the amount of garbage sent to landfills, significantly lowering methane emissions and our overall environmental footprint. We've distributed composting buckets, informative books, and educational posters to the Community Transition Program, Middle School and High School MiCI programs, and the Learning Center classrooms across our CCISD locations. ♻️ Do you have a composting system or any composting tips? We would love to see your photos! #Composting #Sustainability #Stewardship #CommunityProject
