MELISSA FRUGÉ

My family’s roots go back six generations in northern Michigan. This is my home.

By far my greatest accomplishment has been raising my son. In him I see the future, and it is for him I see a future worth fighting for.

I was lucky to grow up in Boyne City with my parents, brother, sister and lots of extended family. But I was also excited to discover life below the 45th parallel. After graduating from Boyne City High School in 1998 I went on to earn a bachelor's in journalism from Central Michigan University.

 
  MILITARY STRONG

MILITARY STRONG

From my grandpa who fought in the Korean War to my brother, and brother-in-law who served in currently active combat zones, my family has proudly served in all branches of the US Military. It has given me a unique perspective of life before, during and after service.

I also called Fort Sill, Oklahoma home, living on base and working for KSWO, 7News.

Giving back to my community is a vital part of who I am. Whether it's serving on the board of Boyne City's 4th of July Committee or coaching my son's Little League team, I enjoy making a difference.

One of my most influencing and illuminating experiences was a study abroad program, a winter semester in Spain during 2003. A notable time to be abroad, as the U.S. commenced Operation Iraqi Freedom. Experiencing that moment through a different culture offered new insights and sparked a greater interest in learning more about our Government.
