The Board of Commissioners asked Lenawee County students to tell them why Lenawee County is such a great place to live and Kamryn Powell submitted the following:
Lenawee County, in my opinion, is one of the greatest places to live in Michigan! The home style feel within this little area is one in which you can not replicate anywhere else. Lenawee County has so many interesting things to offer like a reasonable cost of living, small towns and villages, and a proximity to nearby cities that allow the locals to enjoy the simplicity, safety and charm of a smaller community while living just a short drive to great metropolitan museums, professional sports, and shopping centers. It is the perfect county.
Michigan by itself is already a beautiful state with all its geographic landscapes and unique areas of breathtaking nature. However, Lenawee County is known for its untouched, magical nature scenes. You can visit any city in this county, no matter how small, and find a stunning river or alluring venue to capture your eyes and your heart. That is my favorite characteristic of Lenawee County, the unfamiliar yet magnificent little regions one can adventure to in any city.
Lenawee County provides recreational activities for all ages to enjoy! From our lakes and trails to skydiving and golf courses, beautiful Lenawee is filled with fun ways to spend with family and friends. Also, the smaller towns allow for alluring skies and perfect places to stargaze. Also, the festivals in Lenawee are undoubtedly some of the most genuinely fun events found in Michigan.
Lenawee County also has a multitude of great educational opportunities. Each district has a great educational schooling programs for all grades k-12. It is also home to many exceptional colleges like Siena Heights, Adrian College, and Jackson Community College. The Lenawee Intermediate School District also created the LISD TECH CENTER which provides high school juniors and seniors free programs to earn credit toward graduation requirements, industry certifications, and/or college credit. That is an amazing resource for all students who wish to further their education. It truly creates a perfect environment for families looking to raise well educated kids in a very close community.
There are many vibrant arts in Lenawee as well! The Adrian Symphony, Croswell Opera House, Tecumseh Center for the Arts, the Adrian College and Siena Heights University theaters and art departments, Lenawee Council for the Visual Arts and the Community Arts of Tecumseh provide many opportunities for our residents to both enjoy and participate in the arts.
One of the most important things I look for in a place to live is a community with multiple volunteering opportunities. Lenawee County has its own program called “Volunteer Lenawee” that connects individuals and allows us to work together to create the perfect environment full of compassion and selfless people.
It is for all these reasons that Lenawee County is one of the safest, most charming and alluring counties in all of Michigan. The compassion of its people, magic of its nature, and endlessly fun events create a warm and welcoming environment. The countless educational and volunteering opportunities develop well-rounded people who can do major things together. It is a perfect community to me, and I am extremely grateful I had the opportunity to grow up in such a quintessential environment.
Well said, Kamryn, and best wishes on your future endeavors!
