Legislative Update

Stone Offers Resolution for the Memorial of Holodomor 

From 1932-33, Ukraine suffered a terrible famine and genocide as a result of Soviet operations. Soviet authorities concealed and destroyed information about the events that would later be known as Holodomor. In the Ukrainian language, Holodomor translates to “extermination by means of starvation.” As a way to further recognize, across the globe, the tragic events that took place in Ukraine, I introduced a House Resolution to declare Nov. 28 as Holodomor Memorial Day in Michigan.

Fire Safety and Prevention Town Hall

Location: Center Line Fire Hall Station/City Hall

Address: 7070 E. 10 Mile Road in Center Line

Date: Tuesday, Nov. 29

Time: 7-8 p.m.

Community members are invited to attend an educational presentation on fire safety and prevention, including a tour of the Center Line Fire Hall Station facility. This event aims to help community members reduce the risk of property loss, injury and death caused by fire. Fire trucks and other public safety vehicles will be on site. Fire safety is more than stop, drop and roll. It’s not every day we get to hear from experts in the field of fire safety, get a safety demonstration and take a tour of the fire station. All community members, including children and families, are encouraged to attend. I hope to see you all there for this important and unique event — let’s help cultivate a safer and more knowledgeable community.

Manufacturing Day Event – Center Line Academy

On Thursday, Oct. 6, Center Line High School Academy Students participated in Manufacturing Day. I want to thank sponsoring organizations for including me on the Manufacturing Day Tour. It was an enlightening experience. It was informative to see what types of manufacturing positions are available and what we need to be preparing Michigan’s future workforce to do. These and other similar experiences will help fuel the talent pipeline and prepare the next generation for careers in our state.

Fellowships for Future Educators, Stipends for Student Teachers

Applications for $10,000 scholarships for up to 2,500 future Michigan educators, and $9,600 payments for student teachers has opened. To be eligible, future educators and current teachers must apply through the MiSSG Portal. Lowering the cost of higher education will encourage hiring and training more teachers. Getting this done will help bring down class sizes and provide individualized attention to support students. I am thankful for state funding in the bipartisan education budget, which also included the highest state per-student investment in Michigan history and record investments in school infrastructure, mental health and school safety.

For more information or help applying for the Fellowship or Stipend, visit or contact MI Student Aid at, (888) 447-2687, or @mistudentaid on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

 Scholarship for Graduating Class of 2023

The state launched a new webpage to help the graduating class of 2023 apply for the Michigan Achievement Scholarship and lower the cost of college by thousands of dollars a year to make college more affordable for families, grow Michigan’s talent pool and get the state closer to achieving its Sixty by 30 goal. Students should talk to their parents or guardian, gather documents, and fill out their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible to save up to $8,250 over three years as they earn their associate degree at a community college, up to $20,000 over five years at a private college, or up to $27,500 over five years at a public university.
