Justin Gluesing, AMA ESD Superintendent, receives another check for $6,000 from LeAnn Schultz, Director of Marketing for Alpena Alcona Area Credit Union.   The funds will support the purchase and installation of ADA-accessible playground equipment for students with disabilities at each public elementary school campus across the AMA ESD's three-county region.  The AMA ESD's service area encompasses all of Alpena, Montmorency, and Alcona Counties and includes Alpena Public Schools, Alcona, Atlanta, and Hillman Community Schools.  In total, AAACU has pledged $18,000 to the project.

"With offices in each of our counties, Alpena Alcona Area Credit Union has been a great partner with this project,” Gluesing said. "They are always looking for ways to support the students and communities we serve.”

The AMA ESD Board of Education approved 50% of the funding for the project.  Phase 1 of the project was completed at Alcona, Atlanta, and Hillman Community Schools.  Phase 2 of the project is planned for the summer of 2024 and will focus on the Alpena Public School’s six (6) elementary campuses.  

Any group interested in supporting this project can contact AMA ESD Superintendent Justin Gluesing at 989.354.3101.
