VICTORY TWP. — AT&T donated $15,000 to the West Shore Community College Foundation this morning. The contribution will support the foundation’s “Boomerange” program, a career exploration and readiness program that lets area high school students visit college and work with college students to create a resume, prepare for interviews and participate in a career fair.

“Partnerships like this between AT&T and great local schools have the power to change lives,” said State Representative Ray Franz (R-101st District). “The Boomerange program is a fantastic resource for the region and one that’s making a real difference for real students.”

“AT&T is excited to partner with the West Shore Community College Foundation, West Shore Educational Service District and the local business community to help prepare local students for success in college and tomorrow’s careers,” said AT&T Michigan President Jim Murray in a press release. “Working together we’re creating a brighter future for Michigan, one student at a time.”
