“Safe Streets, Healthy Kids”: Erika Johnson at the CEO Leadership Academy

Listen: Last summer, there was construction on the stretch of North Avenue between 30th and 40th Street that caused me to find a new bike route to work. I eventually settled on a route using Brown St (due in large part to the Cowboy Mural on 31st Street) that took me past the CEO Leadership Academy. I always wondered what went on inside of the building, and because it’s just a matter of time until I find a reason to get into every building in Milwaukee, this interview gave me a reason to go inside.

At the CEO Leadership Academy, I met Erika Johnson, a rising 10th grader at St. Joan Antida’s who’s spending her summer working with the Earn and Learn. And on a regular morning at work, we did a short interview: see podcast below.
