Other articles include an overview about why education is one of the eight assets identified in our 21c3 initiative, a column by League CEO Dan Gilmartin, a column by Lou Glazer, founder of Michigan Future Inc., a photo story of our highly succssful 2010 Convention in Dearborn, and question and answer session with Adrian Mayor Gary McDowell, a piece about the city of Wyoming coming together to help students, and much more.
