On February 8th, 2002, representatives from Onekama's faculty and student body traveled to Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti to attend and present at the State Service Learning Confrence.

Katie Baker and Brandy Ballard did an excellent job presenting the student-made Water Quality Project Powerpoint and answering impromptu quesions from the audience.

Mrs. Catanese, Miss Scheppelmann, Mrs. Peabody, Katie Baker, Brandy Ballard, and Mr. Hughes take a moments to pose for the camera while preparing for their presentation.
