Excerpt: The key to a successful future for Michigan includes turning out graduates with skill sets needed to fill the jobs of the future. It also includes increasing access to postsecondary education for low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented students.

The upcoming Michigan Pre-College and Youth Outreach Conference will explore these challenges, and will focus on the urgency of college access.

The keynote speaker at this tenth annual conference is Jaime Casap, the Chief Education Evangelist for Google and a 10th grade communication skills educator at the Phoenix Coding Academy in Arizona.
