Making the Grade

WHMI is saying a big "Thank You!" to Rachel Veilleux!  Rachel teaches 6th grade special education at Parker Middle School in Howell and was voted as one of the best teachers in the Livingston County area in the WHMI “Making the Grade” contest.  We received nearly a hundred nominations, and she was chosen as 1 of our 3 winners!  Rachel was awarded $300 in fun money, a special “Making the Grade” Trophy, and custom coffee mug floral bouquet from Meier Flowerland. 

Thank you to everyone that participated in this year's promotion!  If you'd like to listen to the audio from our winning teachers, visit and  go to the Programming Menu to click the Podcast's link. 

WHMI's Making the Grade was made possible by Hartland Electric, Michigan Educational Credit Union, Stines Family Dentistry, The Elder Care Firm in Brighton, Aubree’s Pizzeria and Grill of Howell, and The Scherff Agency and Meemic Insurance.
