Kettering University’s efforts to revitalize the surrounding neighborhood were featured recently in the East Village Magazine. Jack Stock, Kettering external relations director, was quoted regarding the purpose and goals of the initiative.
Stock pointed out that the area is an “institutional corridor.”
During Orientation Weekend, incoming freshman were invited to take part in Kettering’s annual local volunteering event to help revitalize some of Flint’s local parks and lots.
Stock said that 165 Kettering students cleaned up University Avenue on July 13. The students collected more than 125 bags’ worth of garbage.
