State Rep. Timmy Beson, R-Bangor Township, fourth from left in front row, delivers backpacks and school supplies to students at the Bay-Arenac Intermediate School District on Friday, Sept. 16. AT&T Pioneers provided the supplies as part of the organization’s Tools for Learning initiative. Beson was joined by other state lawmakers participating in the event: Rep. Annette Glenn, third in front row, and Sen. Kevin Daley, sixth in front row.
My three kids and their fellow Bay County students are heading back to school, which makes me think about why I first entered public service a few years back. I ran for and served on my local school board to make sure my own children got a great education at Bangor Township Schools.
