Students round out city boards for East Jordan and Boyne City

Charlevoix Downtown Development Authority



City Officials in East Jordan voted to add a student position to their Downtown Development Authority Board Monday. Boyne City Library also decided to join, voting Tuesday to add a student position to their own board. 

Each position has the responsibilities of a regular board member without the weight of a vote. 


15-year-old Liam Dreyer is the founder of Government for Tomorrow. He brought the idea to the boards after spending the last year as the youngest DDA board member in the state. 


He sat down with IPR’s Kendra Carr to talk about their search for interested students and how he got involved in local government. 

Kendra Carr joined IPR as the All Things Considered host in 2019. She previously worked at WMOM in Ludington as the News Director. In 2017, WMOM received the Michigan Association of Broadcasters "Station of the Year" award.
