MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A successful child development program initiated by the YMCA of Marquette County and run in conjunction with the Marquette Area Public Schools is going to expand.

Lisa Coombs-Gerou, Executive Director of the YMCA of Marquette County, joined the SUNNY Morning Show today to outline the plan for the replication and expansion of the Vandenboom Program to the K-I Sawyer School at the former Air Force base near Gwinn.

According to Coombs-Gerou, a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation is allowing the Y to cover the start-up costs to replicate the program and bring it to the school at Sawyer.

She also added that similar plans may be in the works at other school districts in Marquette County that have similar needs for educating at-risk youth.
