Welcome Janelle O'Hara, our 2011 Young & Free Michigan Spokesperson!

It's official! Janelle O'Hara, 23 years old, from Eastpointe is Michigan First Credit Union's Young & Free Michigan Spokesperson. Our President, Michael Poulos, offered the job to Janelle on Tuesday afternoon. With the help of a crowd of enthusiastic friends, family and Michigan First employees, Janelle was completely surprised and accepted the job. Take a look at the video! 

All three finalists, Timmy, Jennifer and Janelle put together awesome campaigns to rally thousands of voters.

Janelle won the tight race after an intense competition with her fellow finalists, Timmy Nelson, of Trenton, and Jennifer Weaver, of Southfield. The two runners up will each receive an iPod Touch for their hard work.

Grooves from AMP 98.7 was on the scene and asked Janelle how she was feeling. Listen to the clip:

We'll keep you posted right here on the blog over the next week as Janelle gets settled in and takes over.

Welcome aboard Janelle!
