Michigan State Rep. Charles Brunner, D-Bay City, and Michigan State Sen. Judy Emmons, R-Sheridan, have received the Excellence in Education Award at the 14th annual AT&T/MACUL/TRIG Student Technology Showcase.

The award is given to legislators who have been dedicated to improving the Michigan educational system, and was presented by AT&T, the Michigan Association for Computer Users in Learning and TRIG.

“Representative Brunner and Senator Emmons have played a significant role in supporting schools, classrooms and education-related initiatives,” said Mark Smith, MACUL executive director. “Their efforts have contributed to our students being better prepared for tomorrow’s workforce.”

Emmons is a mid-Michigan native representing the 33rd Senate District which includes four counties: Clinton, Ionia, Isabella, and Montcalm.

Brunner was first elected to the state House in 2010 and represents the 96th District, covering the majority of Bay County.

The AT&T/MACUL/TRIG Student Technology Showcase featured technology displays from 35 schools statewide during three separate sessions. Exhibits were set up in the halls of the Capitol so that students could provide legislators with hands-on demonstrations to show how technology is being used in the classroom to enhance learning.
