Jordan DeLeau, Black River Public School
“This is a great opportunity to be able to join an airport board and learn how an airport functions. One of my career possibilities is being a helicopter pilot in the military.”
Carter VanDerKolk, Holland Christian High School
“I wanted to join the WMRA Board because I have always liked being involved in my community. I am considering a career in politics and the experience I gain from being on a board will be a good first step.”
