Longtime member Kara Schrader believes life is better with interesting conversation, fun events and engaging community activities, and the group can help cultivate those in Port Huron and surrounding areas.
“Although I’m not a Blue Water Area native, I’ve come to consider this great community home,” she said. “I joined the BWYP to connect with other like-minded people in the area to help impact the community in a positive way.”
She has been a part of the group since 2011 and has served on the board since 2013.
Kara feels being a part of the group it has given her the tools to become more active and involved in supporting her adopted community. The group has also helped her cultivate great new relationships and develop both personally and professionally.
“My hope is to continue to connect my network of friends with the extensive BWYP network and continue to harvest all that the great Blue Water community has to offer,” Kara said.
She works as a planner for St. Clair County and graduated from Michigan State University with a Bachelor of Science in Urban and Regional Planning with a specialization in environmental economic policy.
In her spare time, Kara enjoys many outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, camping and swimming. She is also a huge fan of most board games.
