A Democratic candidate for county commissioner has been honored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars as the Teacher of the Year at the local, district, and State of Michigan levels for the year 2020-2021.
Michelle Spisz, a teacher at Fowlerville Junior High School, received the honor the weekend of July 31 at the Veterans ceremony at the Fowlerville Fair. The Teacher of the Year ceremony was delayed a year due to the pandemic.
“I truly am lifted on the shoulders of giants and am honored and humbled,” Michelle said about the award.
“Freedom is not free, and I am blessed beyond measure. Thank you to all that serve and sacrifice. Because of you, I can.”
Michelle is an active member of American Legion 141 Auxiliary. VFW Local 6464 sponsored the contest locally.
She is running for county commissioner in the district that includes the townships of Cohoctah, Conway, Howell, and northern Handy Township, including the village of Fowlerville.
“Democrats believe in service to their community and Michelle is a Democrat who provides outstanding service to her students, school district, and broader community,” said Judy Daubenmier, chair of the Livingston County Democratic Party.
“She will provide the same level of service to her constituents as a member of the county commission. We are proud to have her as our candidate!”
