Indiana's China Ties in Spotlight

Gov. Mitch Daniels (on a trip to China) helped unveil a new bybrid bus line from Columbus-based Cummins Inc. that will be used by the Hangzhou Public Transit Authority, reports Inside INdiana Business. (The unveiling is pictured, at left.)

But there's more China news than that this week. Eli Lilly & Co., is congratulating two of its employees, Helen Huang and her husband John He, for their work in helping other Chinese become acclimated to Indiana (an ad featuring the couple ran in The Indianapolis Star's business section on 9 September). He is an organic chemist, and Huang a bioanalytical chemist. He has been a six-term president of the Indianapolis Chinese Community Center.

And, today (10 September), a feature on the International School's new Mandarin Immersion program ran in the paper's "North Indy" section. Sherry Yang is the instructor.
