HARTFORD, Mich. — The ‘Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates’ program is the topic at hand in the first of several stops Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette will make throughout Southwest Michigan on Wednesday.
Schuette, who is running for governor, will first visit Hartford High School on Wednesday morning.
Nearly 130 students in the district take part in the jobs program, which is an elective-style course that students take in school that connects them with people and opportunities so they can land a job or a college degree after high school.
Over 500 students in Southwest Michigan are enrolled in the program.
Ahead of Schuette’s visit, Kristin Harrington, the executive director of Youth Solutions, said the goal is to help students and Michigan’s economy.
