Congratulations to Dakota Stafford! She was one of the first students at Gateway Academy in the fall of 2011. She plans on getting married this month to her fiance who is enlisted in the Armed Services and currently at boot camp in Georgia. She will be attending college next fall at Kalamazoo Valley or Kellogg Community College studying Early Childhood Education. One of her favorite experiences at Gateway was the community service at the Gull Lake Community Education and Early Learning Center. She believes that this has helped prepare her for her future plans.
