John Rosenthall On WSFA News 12 in Tuskegee, Alabama

National Small Town Alliance

Assists With Tuskegee Development Project

WSFA News 12 Reporter Melissa McKinney

Interviews John Rosenthall

Rosenthall: "As the community prospers so does the university."

McKinney: "He's working to restore cities with historically black colleges and universities."

Rosenthall: "The parents really don't want to carry their kids to a school where there's a problem in the community."

McKinney: "Tuskegee is first in line for a facelift."

Rosenthall: "We could have gone to a lot of other places, but they're not as well known as Tuskegee."

McKinney: "Community leaders and students are tossing around ideas like building renovations, downtown design, and clean-up. If those ideas become Tuskegee's master plan - then the real work begins. "

Rosenthall: "We don't have any money to work with and my theory is that once we put together a great plan, once we put together the people to make this work, it will be our job to find the money."
