During Wednesday's meeting of the Michigan City Common Council, Kyle Kazmierczak of the Michigan City Fire Department gave a report about the progress of the fire science program at the AK Smith Career Center.

Ten students are set to graduate from the program, with another 21 enrolled next year for the second attempt at the class. The program appears to have been a resounding success as students have tested well above state standards and 70 percent of those enrolled are already working with volunteer fire department throughout the county.
