On Thursday, Nov. 3, 2011, ten Lake Orion High School sophomores, counselor Michele Novak and parent Julie Barnett attended the 29th Annual Take a Giant Step Teen Conference at Wayne State University.  The conference’s mission was to help young teens from diverse backgrounds recognize their similarities and become more accepting of ethnic, cultural, religious and socioeconomic differences.
