LANSING– Michigan community college and university students can now have alcohol in class. That doesn’t mean students can crack open a beer in the middle of math. Gov. Rick Snyder recently signed into law a bill that allows accredited culinary or hospitality business programs to serve alcohol on campus. But the occasion must help students learn more about the industry. Before the law some colleges couldn’t host events that served alcohol as part of instruction because Michigan liquor laws prohibit alcohol from being served on state-owned land.

Hundreds of Holt students and residents gathered at Veterans Memorial Park Monday night to mourn the two local teens killed in a car accident Sunday. The victims were Holly Bossenbery, a 17-year-old Holt High School senior, and Taylyr Cochran, an 18-year-old graduate of Holt High who was attending Lansing Community College. Two other teens in the car were injured.  

Those gathered together at the park lit candles and remembered their classmates. “Me and Holly always walked class-to-class together,” said Anthony Cooper, a junior at Holt High School.
