'Road Scholars' on the road again

‘I feel like we went out and met the heroes of the state,’ said Myron Campbell of the Road Scholars tour around Michigan May 1–5. In what would be called a ‘listening tour’ in other contexts, the five-day trip took 30 faculty members to 11 Michigan cities to meet with prominent local figures and discuss relevant state issues. Stops ranged from the Muskegon Correctional Facility to the Peshawbestown reservation to Focus Hope in Detroit.

Record staff member Theresa Maddix went along to tell the story and snap photos, including the one above. For the story and more photos, click here.


Step up to reduce stress

Many of the sessions at the Workplace 2000 Conference focused on stress reduction at home and at work. One of the best ways to reduce stress in either setting is to ‘experience postures of peace, poise and focus,’ according to Gail BK Rowland, who led workshop participants through ‘YOGAMOVES: Stress Reduction, Self-Discovery and Centering.’ Photo by Rebecca A.
