Congratulations to scholars

I am a new subscriber, a professor of urban and regional planning at the University of Wisconsin Madison, from small town New Mexico (high school graduating class of 30), and I am not an immigrant, nor even a first generation college graduate.

Having said this, I am duly impressed by the scholars from Storm Lake High School that will be attending the University of Iowa. I congratulate them and those behind this program that advances the state and the nation through foresightful investment in young people.
