Gov. Granholm to receive Swedish Polar Star award
Advertisements [?]
Glad to know some people in the world know how to measure accomplishment , cause lots of people in Michigan don't seem to.. Go. Jenny. Lots of idiots in Michigan can't connect the dots.. Seems most in Sweden do..
Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm will receive one of Sweden's highest awards Thursday when King Carl XVI Gustaf presents her with Sweden's Insignia of First Commander, Order of the Polar Star.

The award is in recognition of the work Granholm has done to encourage relationships between Michigan and Sweden to promote clean energy.

After Granholm made an August 2007 trade trip to Sweden, the king visited Michigan in 2008 to preside over the groundbreaking at Flint's Center of Energy Excellence. The center is a collaboration between Swedish Biogas International, Kettering University and the city of Flint to produce clean energy from waste removed from the city's wastewater treatment plant.

Granholm and the king also co-hosted a climate change conference in Dearborn during that visit.

The king will present Granholm with the award Thursday afternoon at the Royal Palace in Stockholm. Those attending will include U.S. Ambassador to Sweden Matthew Barzun, the Swedish consul general for Michigan, Lennart Johansson, and Michigan Economic Development Corp. President and CEO Greg Main.
