Yes, today's guest has the same last name as Karla Byrd, John's cohost, and that is because Oliver Byrd is Karla's husband. On today's show, John and Karla begin interviewing the 2015 class of Urban Heroes and they will start with Oliver. Oliver worked at Mellon Bank for many years, but also served the community as the chair of the United Way and the chairman of the August Wilson Center for African American Culture in downtown Pittsburgh. Oliver will talk about growing up in Pittsburgh and what motivated him to serve so selflessly throughout his career.
John and Karla met Deloris in 2014 while they were conducting a workshop for the residents of Hazelwood, a community in renewal in the City of Pittsburgh. They were so impressed with her story, which included surviving a bout with cancer, and leadership that they both nominated her to be part of the 2015 Urban Heroes class. Today Deloris joins Karla and John to tell listeners her story.
The Center for Urban Biblical Ministry has been educating adults in the Pittsburgh area in partnership with Geneva College since 1988. Since 1998, Karla Byrd has been the CUBM director, guiding the program through rough waters to calm seas. She has also been instrumental in founding the Pittsburgh Urban Heroes Program, and was recognized as an urban hero herself. Today John Stanko, the show's co-host, interviews Karla to talk about life, CUBM, what it takes to be an urban hero and the state of CUBM and adult education in general in the 21st century.
Dr. Lola Thorpe is the pastor of the North Side Institutional Church of God in Christ and her daughter Lisa is the president of the Nonprofit Leadership Training Institute (NLTI). Both have served with distinction in the Pittsburgh community and have been honored for their work. Today the title of "Urban Hero" is added to that list of recognitions. Both ladies will be back-to-back guests on this expanded show.

This can go in so many directions. Gamblers know a lot about this but it's not always our own decisions that we're mad at. SOmetimes we're pissed off about other people's decisions that affect others' lives.
Are you generally happy about the decisions that you make?
