Central Michigan University students work to reinvent Michigan
There is no shortage of articles, quotes, and news stories telling us what politicians, business titans and other leaders think of Michigan and its future.
But all too often their view are from 35,000 feet up.
What about the view from the ground, from tomorrow's leaders? From college students?
That's the idea behind a website launched by business journalism students at Central Michigan University.
It's called "Reinventing Michigan: The Rebirth of Michigan, Hopeful Solutions for Moving Forward."
The students are being guided in all of this by their professor Micki Maynard, who, among many credits, was the Detroit Bureau chief for the New York Times.
She joined us in the studio along with one of the students: Austin Stowe of South Lyon. Austin is a junior at CMU.
