Success Stories from the Ward Home

By Bonita Lee Penn

Jamee-Alaeylah Dany’le Garth-Flemister is a senior at Propel Andrew Street High School in Munhall. She is also involved in the Ward Home’s Supervised Independent Living Program (S.I.L.).  The S.I.L. program is a 24-hour supervised community-based residential program which serves teens (16-21) in apartment style housing.  The residential program assists teens who are in transition from the social services system to adult life.

The Ward Home was established in 1905 as a safe haven for children. The S.I.L. program includes emphasis on the development of life skills, fiscal responsibility, home economic skills, workforce development, interpersonal skills, social and cultural awareness along with higher education initiatives.

About four years ago the Ward Home networked with local artists/centers to establish enrichment workshops. These workshops offer the opportunity for the teens to relax and explore their creative side. “This is our way to connect deeper with the teens to help them discover a passion, a hobby, some have even discovered a career path,” Daryl Lucke, Ward Homes’ Executive Director, commented.   Click Here for Full Details

Change Your Mind Change Your Season: Sometimes networking just happens…Always be ready!

By James Boggus

Networking opportunities do not always happen in hotel ballrooms complete with nametags.  As an entrepreneur, you never know when you may meet someone at a restaurant, a ball game, or even at the gym, who may be valuable to you professionally.  When this happens, let it happen.  Always, have your business cards on hand or an electronic equivalent.  Be prepared at all times to build authentic rapport.

Remember, networking is not always a sales pitch.  Here are a few tips on how to build and keep the conversation moving forward.   Click Here for Full Details

Soul Pitt Media CEO part of Judges Panel at “PITTch Fest” that took place in Johnstown PA

‘PITTch’ perfect products: Wrist support concept awarded top prize

Student Claire Letts explains “The Monroe” weighted skirt at PITTch Fest on Friday. The weighted hem prevents “wardrobe malfunctions.”

The ideas at the second annual PITTch Fest ranged from functional fashion and thermal-powered cellphone chargers to an innovative brace to help patients with Parkinson’s disease.

Ultimately, it was a new approach to wrist support that took the top prize in the contest’s proficient category. The judged contest for regional entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas wrapped up the 25th annual Showcase for Commerce on Friday afternoon.

Wrivo LLC’s Wristocat won $3,000 in funding to create a polished prototype to take to market.

David Luciew, a Johnstown design professional who developed the product with his wife, Michele, while he was recovering from surgery to correct carpal tunnel syndrome, focused his pitches on building a better mousetrap.

“With our life and livelihood relying on ability to use a computer, the mouse giving us the most problem is sitting right there on our desk,” he told judges in the Stars and Stripes room at the Cambria County War Memorial.

The one-size-fits all product would work with a mouse, keyboard or any other computer input that requires hands.

Judge Donna Michele Baxter, CEO and founder of Soul Pitt Media, said she liked the “sleekness” of the design she watched in Luciew’s marketing video.
“It looks like an Apple product,” she said.  “It’s definitely sexy.” Click Here for Full Details

http://www.soulpittmedia.com/images/pressreleasebanner1.jpg

PITTSBURGH – After three successful woodstove collections, the Allegheny County Health Department is again offering County residents a chance to dispose of old woodstoves and outdoor wood-fired boilers that do not meet current national emission standards in return for cash incentives.

“The Health Department’s ‘bounty’ program has been extremely successful in terms of helping residents switch to better performing equipment, but also benefitting our air quality as well,” said Health Department Director Dr. Karen Hacker. “I’m proud that we are able to offer these opportunities to our residents and that these collections allow us to continue moving towards the goal of reducing or eliminating fine particulate pollution.” Click Here for Full Details

Wilkinsburg CDC Will Pursue Liquor License Referendum this Spring

The Borough of Wilkinsburg has been a dry community since 1870, but the Wilkinsburg Community Development Corporation (WCDC) aims to change that this spring.

The WCDC Board of Directors voted to pursue a liquor license referendum to legalize the sale of liquor licenses to restaurants in the Borough of Wilkinsburg. The WCDC believes restaurant liquor licenses will attract new businesses to Wilkinsburg and increase investment in the area. This effort is supported by the WCDC Five-Year Strategic Plan and the Wilkinsburg Business District Revitalization Plan, which was approved by Wilkinsburg Borough Council in 2010.

Soul Pitt’s own Craig Dawson, VP of Sales & Marketing, ran into this sweet pint size baker extraordinaire during the Rosemary Crawford for Judge Campaign launch party last week.  Ten-year-old Leah Baker Fowler, owner of Cupcakes Most Wanted, was quick to sale something to Craig, instead of the other way around and of course Craig’s sweet tooth couldn’t resist purchasing a few cupcakes from this high energy little business lady.  If you haven’t tasted one yet, you definitely should because as she’s says herself, “IT’S A CRIME NOT TO TASTE EM’!”

Tasty Treats Makes Her Business Sweet!

by C. Denise Johnson

When I first heard about this enterprising ten year-old I thought, “How adorable!”  More often than not, tweens and teens want to do for themselves as soon as possible. Their quest for independence sometime involves earning their own money to do with as they like. Such as the case with fifth-grader who is building her brand, one batch at a time. And it doesn’t hurt that she is absolutely adorable and cute as a button!

Johnstown Spotlight: Black Lives Matter

By Ron Fisher

In light of the recent tragedies and marches engulfing the Country, I wanted to take a moment to speak on the inequality and injustice that you can find in any neighborhood.  This article isn’t my typical piece, only because it’s not about someone I know; it’s about someone you know.  We are all human beings, yet time and time again we have been given clear examples of how the “majority” still rules.  As the black community is making strides to better itself, African-Americans are being forced to believe that their lives have no value.  With the steadily increasing number of Blacks dying by the hands of police officers, tension continues to build across the Country, and the nation finds itself in what I believe to be this generation’s civil rights movement.
