Hemlock, MI-  We always knew the STEM Center was a representation of the district's commitment to innovate, collaborate, and educate our community of learners, but now others are taking notice.

Board President Matt Wesener said “You may hear us continuously talk about the great things happening at Hemlock.  These things simply would not be possible without the support of all the district employees, parents, community, and local businesses. The opportunities and recognition brought through the Lockwood STEM Center is a great example of that.”

The Lockwood STEM Center hosted a grand opening in June 2021 which drew a crowd to help celebrate the opening of the center and the bold strategic move toward preparing students for their future and not our past.

Unable to attend in June, Congressman John Moolenaar who represents our community in Washington D.C. reached out to schedule a visit. During his visit Moolenaar toured the facility, talked with students, drove a robot on the competition field, and flew a drone.

Superintendent, Dr. Don Killingbeck said, “It was great talking to John and advocating for a common sense approach in Washington D.C. with K-12 public education.”

The Lockwood STEM Center is located on the northwest side of Hemlock High School at 733 N. Hemlock Road. For more information about this or other positive happenings contact Hemlock Public School District at (989) 642-5282.
