He shared about how S.T.E.M. is not just for the technology, but also serves in everything we do, touch and possess.

What an amazing program. We interviewed Pastor Trenillo (Tree) Walters, founder and Gospel Musician of Outreach 24/7 (www.outreach247.com) with his guess, Elder Tony; and Shawn Cosby, Actress, Dancer, Choreographer.

 

1st Segment: Pastor Trenillo (Tree) Walker

Pastor Trenillo shared his background being raised in a Washington DC hood. A place where people said nothing good can come out of there. But God saw otherwise. Older men took him under their care and taught him the art of sound/audio production so much so that after graduation he was hired to work at BET. Go-Go has always been a 1st love. God ensured that the style of music would not be changed to be used for the Kingdom. Bob Jones heard the sound and – BOOM, Outreach 24/7 hit the big league. To book Outreach 24/7 for an event, contact Pastor Tree at www.outreach247.com 

 

2nd Segment: Shawn Cosby

Shawn Cosby is an awesome individual, so personable and warm. She started dancing at the age of 7 and was horrible. She didn’t have the natural things a dancer had, so she danced on the back row. Over time, she evolved into a “triple-threat”, known to have “shut down the city” and proved that there is hot talent on the East Coast. Her confidence comes from a strong foundation in God – even after hearing repetitive “no”s from the industry. God knows and has purposed her for greatness. “Those We Don’t Talk About” is written by Shawn and produced by Pastor Trenillo’s Outreach Productions. The film launches 2015! Pastor Trenillo, Elder Tony and Shawn will be back!

Denee Davis, Co-Founder of Is the New Black, Denee Davis, Co/Founder of Is The New Black, shared several pics of Summer-Time Global Trending fashions. The colors, fabrics, prints and simplicity of the outfits gave new hope to staying cool and fashionable this summer. Fab designers have created price-points that allow the meekest income to afford to purchase outfits as close to designer wear at a fraction of the cost.

 

2nd Segment: Shavon D. Johnson, Financial Education Services, "Financial Solutions for You"! What an AMAZING 2nd segment! We discussed Financial Education Services (FES) and all 13-programs it offers to individuals, families and communities. We especially enjoyed our discussion regarding United Credit Education Services (UCES) and its mission to help et al with credit restoration. But the highlight of the discussion was the Youth Financial Literacy. What an opportunity to provide knowledge regarding personal finances, credit and budgeting to our young adults and children, which is sadly missing in the classroom today.

2nd Segment: Physical Health: 1-Blow Could Cost $10,000

Our 2nd segment dealt with being stopped by police and check for driving under the influence (DUI). Today, if you are asked to “blow” in order to determine your blood alcohol content (BAC), and you blow greater than .08 which is the national level, you will be arrested and charged with DUI. It will cost up to $10,000 to defend your position. This includes fines, lawyer fees, car being impounded – at a minimum. But if you cause injury or fatality, the victim can sue you, the establishment that sold you the alcohol and everyone who participated in the sell. We used TiPS University Training to describe how we can certify College, Vocation and HS students to intervene where peers are becoming progressively intoxicated.
