Bill Clinton to speak, receive award at Michigan State
Former President Bill Clinton is visiting Michigan State University to deliver a speech at an event on public service.
Clinton is the first recipient of the Spartan Statesmanship Award for Distinguished Public Service.
He's set to speak Wednesday night at the Governor Jim Blanchard Public Service Forum at the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center on the school's East Lansing campus.
The former Michigan governor and his wife, Janet, donated $1 million to Michigan State to create the award and forum.
Blanchard earned bachelor's and master's degrees from the university.
He was U.S. ambassador to Canada during the Clinton administration after serving two terms as governor.
On Tuesday, the school announced it's joining the Clinton Global Initiative University and offering a minor in entrepreneurship and innovation.
