Great Job Kyle Shenandoah!!.... Recruiting more than 50 city employers and agencies, like SEPTA and PECO, featuring nearly a 100 job offers, Shenandoah says the upcoming event hopes to reach as many South Philly residents as possible. From the University of Penn to the Urban League of Philadelphia, close to a dozen organizational partnerships from around the city are working to make the fair a reality. https://southphillyreview.com/second-annual-career-fair-in-grays-ferry-set-for-june-2-7e96be7de448

    Second annual career fair in Grays Ferry set for June 2
    While teaching first and second grade, Grays Ferry Civic Association Vice President Kyle Shenandoah conducted an experiment to maintain order in the rowdy classroom. Assigning students various tasks, like sharpening pencils or attending to the bathroom, he noticed a shift in their behavior - a correlation, he'd come to realize, that also exists in his backyard.

Congrats to iur very own Kyle Shenandoah. Way to go!!

    Citizen of the Week: Kyle Shenandoah - The Philadelphia Citizen
    Shortly after President Trump's 2016 election, Kyle Shenandoah, a Forgotten Bottom resident, had a life-altering realization. A tax specialist at H&R Block, the 29-year-old had never been politically active; he didn't have a background in law or policy, and figured that disqualified him from really getting involved.

    Developer Ori Feibush says his proposal would be a big step toward transforming Washington Avenue, west of Broad Street, from a strip of warehouses and blighted industrial buildings into a dense commercial and residential corridor binding the revitalized neighborhoods to its north and south.
