Young People Doing Big Things: Six High Schoolers Making Their Mark

Feb. 26, 2024

You don’t have to be an adult to change the world. Just look at Greta Thunberg, Malala Yousafzai, and the like and all that they accomplished while in their teens.

Locally, there are plenty of young people doing their part to stand out from the crowd. Beyond academic or athletic accomplishments - and sometimes in concert with them - a number of students across the region are reaching out to their peers and their communities through a variety of endeavors, from businesses to clubs to nonprofits.

This week's Northern Express - sister publication of The Ticker - highlights the stories of just a few of the young people doing big things in northern Michigan. The Northern Express is available to read online, or pick up a free copy on newsstands at nearly 700 spots in 14 counties across northern Michigan.
