Friday on Lake Effect: Biliteracy, Milwaukee VA, Milwaukee Magazine's City Guide, Transplant Eyes

Friday on Lake Effect

A group of high school graduates from the School District of Waukesha is graduating with a distinct badge of honor: the Seal of Biliteracy. We explore the benefits of a bilingual education. Then, as the Milwaukee VA Medical Center celebrates its 150th anniversary, we speak with its medical director. Later, a look at Milwaukee Magazine's City Guide and an exhibit in Walker's Point, which asks the question: what does it mean to be an American?
