State Rep. Greg VanWoerkom, of Norton Shores, welcomed Mason Schlafer, a boy scout from Troop 1053 to the state capital yesterday and presented him with a tribute for his achievement of becoming the second highest selling popcorn sales scout in the Nation.

To honor his hard work and dedication, Rep. VanWoerkom invited Mason to join him for a day at the state capital. This included shadowing Rep. VanWoerkom in meetings and at committees, as well as being recognized in the House Chamber with a tribute signed by Gov. Whitmer, Lt. Gov. Gilchrist, Sen. Bumstead, and Rep. VanWoerkom.
