Our WPYC Staff
Jamieson Williams is a 2014 graduate of the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music. While a student, he worked with social justice initiatives such as the Racial Awareness Program, Ohio Student Association and the Social Justice Training Institute. After obtaining a degree in Electronic Media & Marketing, he entered Americorps Public Allies in order to work in the nonprofit sector. While Jamieson served as the Americorps Public Ally for two years, he's focused on increasing WPYC's social media presence, conflict resolution between students and increasing their understanding of the real world. Before returning to WPYC as the Executive Director, he worked as a Youth Leadership Development Specialist at the Brighton Center. Jamieson's focus for WPYC youth is increasing focus on technology and cultural diversity.
WPYC’s educational director is headed into her twelth year of service at the Center. Phyllis is near completion of her associate’s degree in early childhood at the Cincinnati State Technical and Community College. Phyllis was a seven year resident of Winton Place and the Center benefits from the positive relationships Phyllis has developed through the years with our students’ families. Most important, her commitment to serving the children of WPYC is steadfast.
Cloud is so happy to be this year’s Public Ally as a Project Coordinator for WPYC. Living in Spring Grove Village, Cloud is looking forward to meeting the kids and parents that make up this great neighborhood. Cloud is a first generation American from Miami, Florida, so they have always valued culture, education, and community. After attaining their BA in Literature, Cloud went on to travel and teach kids ages 5-18 in Mexico with the mission to empower communities experiencing poverty by listening to their specific needs. During the 2016 election, Cloud worked for the non-profit Working America and moved to Cincinnati where they canvassed all 52 neighborhoods to invoke the importance of economic equity and social justice. Cloud hopes to continue their journey by joining the Public Allies Leadership Program to build relationships with community leaders and work with them to "create a just and equitable society." On their off time, Cloud loves hiking, gardening, cooking, and watching cartoons!
