Berrien County School Honored With Prestigious Award

A Berrien County elementary school is taking pride in a very prestigious award.

Howard-Ellis Elementary in Niles is one of only a handful of Michigan schools to be named a "blue-ribbon" school.

The Michigan Department of Education made the announcement Thursday night.

It named Howard-Ellis as one of 18 schools to take home the honor.

Niles superintendent Doug Law says it is a great moment not only for the school but for Niles Community Schools.

A community celebration is planned for the spring.
