My name is Austin Blessing and I am a Junior at Central Michigan University and am studying to earn a Bachelor of Applied Arts with double majors in Entrepreneurship as well as in Political Science, General Concentration with a minor in Legal Studies. After college I plan on going to law school. I am from White Lake, Michigan, part of Senate Majority Floor Leader Kowall’s District, and have always been interested in politics. Interning in Senator Kowall’s office has, so far, been extremely interesting and educational.
Many members of my family have served this great country in the military and honoring our veterans has always been important to me. Assisting with the planning of an event like this is a great chance to commemorate American heroes and it is a pleasure to be involved.
