On Saturday, April 27, 2013, the GRCC Older Learner Center Team took First Place in the Senior Odyssey of Michigan Community Competition. What is Senior Odyssey? Senior Odyssey is the same as Odyssey of the Mind, the international program for students in kindergarten through college. Participants are encouraged to think creatively and outside the box. In Senior Odyssey, participants find opportunities to use their knowledge and life experiences in ways that give them a sense of purpose and pride. They engage in creative activities that promote cognitive vitality and healthy aging. As the winner of this competition, the GRCC Older Learner Center Team has been invited to showcase their performance at the May 25, 2013, Odyssey of the Mind World Finals at Michigan State University. Congratulations to Coach Jean Schmuker, and team members: Jackie Cromwell, Jane Greenman, Brady Jones, Joanne Jones, Freda Lehnen, Roger Meyer, and Barb Wingard!
You guys were just awesome. I really enjoyed your performance. Seniors, we are on our way!!!!
