Homegrown leaders take on local challenges
September 10, 2012 By Allie Nanni, Public Affairs
There is a lot of talk about "brain drain" in South Bend -- talented students who leave the area after they graduate. As Riley High School graduates and alumni of the University of Notre Dame, Khoa Huynh and Andrew Wiand tell similar stories. Both men assumed they would move away like the rest of their friends.
On Monday, Aug. 13, approximately 36 hours after receiving master’s degrees from Notre Dame’s ESTEEM (Engineering, Science and Technology Entrepreneurship Excellence) program, Huynh and Wiand began their fellowships at Union Station Technology Center in downtown South Bend.
