Michaels thanked the Midstate for all its support and spoke about what it was like growing up in central Pennsylvania.

“I am honored to be here today, and growing up not far from here, originally born in Butler, Pa., or Pittsburgh. My father is a veteran, we are so proud to be from here. I learned one amazing thing about central Pa., we have each other’s back, we work hard, we get things done, and we find a way to have fun. We definitely have fun,” Michaels said.
