National CEC Award Winner

The Michigan Council for Exceptional Children (MCEC) is pleased to announce that Alexandra Allers has been recognized by CEC and will be awarded the National "Yes I Can!" award in February in Indianapolis, Indiana. Congratulations Alexandra!!! 

Each year, the MCEC honors the outstanding accomplishments of students with exceptionalities who demonstrate their determination and achievements in and outside of the classroom. In March, 2018, Alexandra Allers was presented with the "Yes I Can!" award in the area of technology. Alexandra is a student with a visual impairment that, despite what others may perceive as a barrier or challenge, has excelled in advanced placement classes at school, participated in national braille competitions, and continues to demonstrate her passion to achieving her personal best. She currently is a senior at Port Huron Northern High School in the Port Huron Area School District. After graduation, this impressive young lady would like to pursue a career in law.
