Lansing, Mich. - The Early College at Lansing Community College will host eight area schools, and some 100 students and parents at the Michigan Early/Middle College Association (MEMCA) Student Leadership Conference, Friday, March 23, 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. at LCC's Downtown Campus, Health and Human Services Building 515 N. Washington Square.
MEMCA provides mid-Michigan high school juniors with the opportunity to earn up to 60 college credits, tuition free, as part of their high school learning experience. Students have a personalized learning experience within a small learning community, a positive school experience, and the social and academic tools to successfully continue their education or career.
The Spring MEMCA Conference serves as a follow up meeting that allows student groups to present advocacy plans. Students will share how they came up with their idea and how they implemented (or will implement) their plan. This is an exciting process for students who are always inspired by what other teams have accomplished.
