Company recognizes STEM and FIRST® Robotics as the key to Michigan’s future
Ellen Green signed up for her high school robotics team because she’s competitive and likes to be involved – not because she was looking for a career.

The old saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child.
Unfortunately, Carlton Honey did not have a village growing up. His father worked four jobs and his mother was quite ill, and he made some poor decisions.
A pastor and father to three now, Carlton spends his spare time building a village around boys who have behavioral issues. As a leader in Beyond Hashtags, an afterschool program designed to inspire, motivate and change the lives of young men, Carlton works to equip them with strong life skills through transparent leadership.
