Regionally Speaking, Tuesday, June 26, 2018


Today:  Michigan City Area Schools' Krueger Middle School is set up to study environmenntal sciences, and students there have already made inroads in recycling and composting.  We talk with enviromental sciences teacher Daisy Lee about the spring semester programs that will continue on into the next school year. 

We also bring you two more conversations from the Welcome Project at Valparaiso University.  The Project collects first-person stories and pairs these with intention conversation to help forge stronger ties within and across our communities.  Today's conversations focus on school rivalries within Gary neighborhoods and a life of music, tempered with the realities of race.

We also revisit our recent conversations with Tami Silverman of the Indiana Youth Institute and with Steve Beekman of the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana.
