Valley Edition: Dec. 23 - Native American Veterans; Fresno State's Joseph Castro; Library For London

Ezra David Romero
Valley Public Radio

On this week's show  we talk to Fresno State President Joseph Castro. He just returned from a White House event with President Obama that aims to boost college opportunity for low income and minority students. We'll find out how the university aims to boost its graduation rate over the next decade, and plan a new future after years of drastically reduced budgets. 

We'll also learn how valley Native American veterans are sharing their stories across generations in an effort to connect with their heritage and heal the wounds of war. It's part of our series Common Threads: Veterans Still Fighting the War. 

And later in the program we'll talk to the man who wants to transform London - and it doesn't have anything to do with the Queen or the British Museum - but it does start with a library.
