The Grand Rapids chapter of the Michigan State University Black Alumni group is producing an event this week to encourage support for higher education.

The inaugural Go Green for Education event will be held Thursday at Bar Divani in Grand Rapids, at 15 Ionia Ave. SW, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

The event will feature a four-person panel of MSU alumni and elected officials to discuss the importance of higher education in the workplace: Grand Rapids Mayor Rosalynn Bliss; Michigan Senator Peter MacGregor; Senior Advisor to the Governor Dick Posthumus; and former Grand Rapids Commissioner Elias Lumpkins.

There will also be a question-and-answer discussion, networking over hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar.

All MSU alumni and supporters are invited to attend.

Tickets are $12 prior to March 23 and $15 at the door.

People can register for the event online.
