Driving to Cornerstone

"I'm extremely excited!"

Playing sports in college wasn’t part of her original plan, but when golf season ended for senior Rebecca Robinson, she thought twice. “When the season ended, I realized I didn’t want it to,” she says.

Honoring America

Each year, the VFW Local 3030 helps facilitate local entries into the national VFW Essay Scholarship Contests. Middle school students participate in a written essay contest called the Patriot’s Pen. High school students participate in an audio essay content called the Voice of Democracy.

24-Hour Band-a-Thon

It’s a fundraiser for the Otsego Band, but it’s also a great opportunity for the community to hear our talented students whenever it fits their schedule. For 24-hours straight, from 4:00 p.m. Friday to 4:00 p.m. Saturday, there will be music playing from the Otsego Middle School gymnasium. There will also be a Vendor Blender on Saturday from 10am-2pm.

Making a Difference

Cleaning up the fallen leaves, twigs and other items that get on the lawns in the fall can be a tough job. And not everyone is able to do the work themselves. That's why Washington Street Elementary started Make a Difference Day almost 14 years ago. 

OHS Food Drive

Classroom contests, community outreach and personal investments helped drive this year's food drive at Otsego High School. The Student Council organized this year's drive and collected food in several ways. 

Purple Week Results

Otsego's fourth purple community event continued the trend of growth. We had a record amount of business sponsors, sold a record 1200+ tshirts and recorded a record donation of more than $23,300 that will go toward cancer research at Van Andel Institute in Grand Rapids! This brings Otsego's total giving, in its four events, to almost $70,000!

Engineering Expedition

RoMan Manufacturing engineers have visited with middle school students in the Design & Modeling class earlier this year. They talked to them about how they use 3D design software and what their job entails. But this week, students were able to see first hand how this local company goes from design to product and the people who make it all happen.
