Michigan Supreme Court's 'Success Stories' highlights court administrators, including Muskegon's

On May 16, the Michigan Supreme Court today released a report highlighting the efforts of Michigan court administrators, who work with judges and staff to manage the daily operations of trial courts to ensure accessibility, efficiency, and engagement. The report, “How Court Administrators Are Opening the Doors of Engagement to Michigan’s Courts,” features 13 court administrators from around the state who ensure that their court staff are prepared to provide the best possible service to the public.
“Working behind the scenes, court administrators work hard to ensure that courthouse doors are open to all and our customers are treated with dignity and respect,” said Chief Justice Bridget M. McCormack, who announced the report during the 2019 Court Managers Conference. “Efficient courts that are engaged with their local communities always have a common denominator – a dedicated and passionate court administrator. And my colleagues and I are especially grateful to court administrators who step up and try new technology to improve service to the public.”

Featured court administrators include Sandra Vanderhyde of Muskegon County Circuit Court, as well as Kevin Bowling of the Ottawa County Circuit and Probate Courts
