Michael Bradley Named Lakeshore’s 2019 Distinguished Alumni

STEVENSVILLE, Michigan, March 6, 2019 The Lakeshore Alumni Association and Lakeshore Excellence Foundation are pleased to announce Michael Bradley as this year’s Lakeshore Distinguished Alumni.

The 1977 graduate of Lakeshore High School began his career in law enforcement serving with the Berrien County Sheriff’s Office as a jail deputy and court security officer before being promoted to patrol deputy with the county’s enforcement division. After three years on the road, Mr. Bradley became the Deputy Director of Emergency Management, and, later, Chief Deputy of Emergency Management and Homeland Security. He retired with the rank of Chief Deputy of the Berrien County Sheriff’s Department.

Mr. Bradley’s work has been recognized by the Michigan Emergency Management Association, where he was awarded recovery, response, and preparedness of the year honors, as well as top Professional Emergency Manager, before being appointed in 2014, and again in 2018, by then-Governor Rick Snyder to the M ichigan Citizen-Community Emergency Response Coordinating Council (MCCERCC) for his technical expertise related to emergency management.

Mr. Bradley’s other community work includes serving as Chair of the Berrien County Chapter of the American Red Cross. He currently serves as acting Emergency Management Coordinator and Deputy Chief of Police for the Pokagon Tribal Nation.

The Lakeshore Distinguished Alumni is chosen through a formal nomination and review process. Lakeshore Alumni Association President and Lakeshore Excellence Foundation Trustee, Chad Deja, says Bradley is an excellent choice as this year’s honoree.

“The Distinguished Alumni committee looks for candidates who excel in their professions, and make significant contributions to their communities, to serve as role models who inspire and challenge today’s students,” said Deja. “Michael has by far exceeded these requirements working behind the scenes in Berrien County, so our community is prepared and safe in the event of an emergency.”

The Lakeshore Excellence Foundation will honor Mr. Bradley during a special ceremony prior to him speaking to graduates at the 2019 Lakeshore Commencement in June. We are proud to name Michael Bradley as the 2019 Lakeshore Distinguished Alumni.
