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.
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.
