Jason LaFay discussed with Kellie Dean, president of Dean Transportation, the progress of the Lansing HOPE Scholarship program and the numerous other initiatives that Kellie has supported throughout his career. A highlight of this interview is the discovery that Mr. Dean is a former teacher. Finally, it was a real honor to thank Mr. Dean for his giving spirit and championing of many important causes involving youth throughout the Lansing area. He has supported past Michigan Creative Educator Summits through sponsorships. Without his generous support, the event would not have progressed to where it is today.
