Friday, July 17, 2015

LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointment of Sarah Clement, of Negaunee, to the Michigan Board of Speech Language Pathology.

This 11-member board, housed in the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, oversees the licensure and practice of speech-language pathologists.

"I am confident Sarah will use her skills and experience to ensure appropriate oversight of the role Michigan's speech-language pathologists play," Snyder said.

Clement is a speech-language pathologist with Negaunee Public Schools, where she primarily serves students in junior kindergarten through fifth grade at Lakeview Elementary Schools. She is a diagnostic team member for all students undergoing special education referrals at the elementary level, and measures screening and assessment efforts. During the summer months she works at Bay Cliff Healthy Camp, where she works with children with special needs. Clement earned both a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in communications disorders from Northern Michigan University. She represents professionals and fills the vacancy created by the resignation of Mary Purtee.

Clement serves the remainder of a four-year term expiring December 31, 2017. Her appointment is subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.
