Celebrating 15 Years of Hope: SHCDP's 15th Anniversary
Five community leaders were honored as Schenley Heights Community Development Program celebrated its 15th anniversary on September 23, 2010 at the Twentieth Century Club. The theme was "Celebrating 15 Years of Hope." It was an evening of inspiration, recognition, celebration and entertainment.
The mistress of ceremonies was Lynne Hayes Freeland, KDKA-TV, and the keynote speaker was Robert Hill, Vice Chancellor, Office of Public Affairs, University of Pittsburgh.
Mr. Hill's topic was ending segregation. He stated that we appear to be powerless to end the segregation in housing, de facto segregation in the schools, which leads to many talented young people trapped in disadvantaged neighborhoods and poor schools. He stressed that we must find a way to improve the schools and neighborhoods by providing more opportunities to our young people.
Honorary chairs were W. Dwight and Glenda Mayo, Founder, Transportation Solutions and Helen Faison, Director of the Pittsburgh Teachers Institute. Entertainment was provided by the Shona Sharif African Dance Drum Ensemble.
