Grace Bartley, a 2013 graduate of Milan High School and a 2017 Wittenberg University graduate, is still active in her fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega, a national co-educational service fraternity, with chapters in every state (except Utah), Puerto Rico and Vancouver founded in 1925 it became co-educational in 1975.
Newly elected by undergraduates in Southeastern Michigan, Bartley now sports the title of Section Chair for Section G-1, a state position, that translates into her being the figurehead for six different chapters including those at Eastern Michigan University, University of Michigan, Michigan Technological University, University of Detroit Mercy, Saginaw Valley State University and Lake Superior State University.
Bartley said, “I make sure they keep up with the requirements and work with each other.”
APO, according in part to their website, states, “It is committed to bringing together college students in a national service fraternity in the fellowship of principles derived from the Scout Oath and of the Law of the Boy Scouts of America; to develop Leadership, to promote Friendship and
to provide Service to humanity.”
Bartley has put her years of learning and service in APO to good use, now working as an emergency solution grant specialist for Wayne Community Action Agency that empowers low-income people and strengthens communities through diverse services, leadership and collaboration.
Bartley has always been an involved student full of energy and devoted to causes, clubs and intellectual pursuits.  She showed her unique abilities beginning at MHS and continues this day to reach goals of directing and helping others.
She is the daughter of Debbie Egner and David Bartley of Milan.
