DCG presents French Sign Initiative

DCG member Jason LaFay and DeWitt High School French teacher Katie Noyes presented at the 2016 Welcoming Michigan Statewide Convening at Lansing Community College's West Campus September 19, 2016. Katie and Jason presented the French sign initiative whereby DHS students placed "bienvenue" signs in Old Town, Lansing businesses in spring 2016. The effort was to promote the French language along with creating a more welcoming atmosphere in the Lansing area for guests, vistors, and residents from abroad.
