Returning home to rural Nebraska, bringing business and a bit of the Aloha state
3 Sep 2019
OSHKOSH — Mike Piva grew up on a farm outside Oshkosh, a small town about 45 miles northwest of I-80 on the southern edge of the Sandhills.
After he graduated from high school, he did what lots of small-town Nebraskans do (much to the dismay of said small towns): left for college, then kept going.
He landed in Phoenix, got a job and started a career.
But then, some years later, he came back, bringing a caffeine-fueled shot of economic development with him.
