CONFERENCE DETAILS

Keynote Speaker: Miss Michigan 2022, Melissa Beyrand

Melissa Beyrand is on a mission to convince students, particularly girls, to consider careers in science, tech, engineering, arts and mathematics, or STEAM. 
It’s not only about improving the long-term career prospects of young Michiganders but it would also help a state that is creating jobs but faces a growing mismatch of talent needs.  
Beyrand, 22, of Milford, has a rather unique platform from which to talk up STEAM professions: She was named Miss Michigan on June 18 and she’s traveling across the region visiting schools, Girl Scout troops, community organizations and others as part of her official duties.
