Students from Menominee Catholic Central School took a field trip to the Gladstone State Police Post in mid-October. The students enjoyed educational, fun displays, including the MSP helicopter, Dive Team Unity, Crime Lab, Motorcycle Unit, Emergency Services Unit and historical car, along with many more displays. There were also fingerprinting exercises, handouts and other activities for the students to familiarize them with the Michigan State Police. The youngsters are pictured as they listen to Trooper Chris Cooper of the Detroit Motorcycle Unit as he gives a presentation.
Third-grader Brock Murph, above, appears to be very excited as he is given a chance to sit on the State Police motorcycle as classmate Kyler Green waits his turn.
Students took a few minutes to pose with the Michigan State Police officers and the “Crash Test Dummies.” They are: from left front, Elana Murphy, Bianca Kurtz, and Elizabeth Furst; second row, Richele Milostan, Emily Schuettpelz and Emily Sandahl; third row, Brody MacNeil; and back row, Tug Paidl, Crash Test Dummies, Andi Anderson, Emma Kopish, Henry Piashecki and Kami Klarich.
