Students step up

I certainly appreciate the comments that some readers are making about our weekly Focus on Excessive Drinking series, but the success of it is in community and student involvement.

On Saturday I highlighted student involvement in my print column, and today you read of the work of the Presidential Leadership Academy.


More on their recommendations will follow their public presentation on April 26.

Another class will be featured in our series next Monday, and both of these are fantastic examples of students contributing to the ongoing dialogue.

I think we'd all rather highlight these students, than the ones who caused problems this past weekend. I'm glad to do it.
