Paying it Forward – YSU Diversity Leadership Celebration

Landau Murphy Jr. spreads message of paying it forward

WKBN Staff

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Friday was a night to showcase not only student leadership, but to help spread the message of paying it forward.

The Youngstown State University Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs presented the 2015 Diversity Leadership Recognition Celebration, honoring YSU students for their contributions on campus. The event was held at Stambaugh Auditorium.

The added bonus for the event was a performance by 2011 America’s Got Talent winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.

“Paying it forward. That is what Landau has been doing. He is a good example for our young people, whether it is high school or college age. And grown folks continue to pay it forward,” said Dr. Sylvia J. Imler, interim director of the YSU Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs.

Murphy said his success should help inspire others.

“I feel my blessing has been a blessing to me and it should be a blessing to other people. When they asked me to come out and do this function, and we sat down and talked about it, actually in my concert in West Virginia, we decided to make it happen,” Murphy said.

This year’s scholarship recipient and Diversity Award winners also were proud of Murphy’s message.

“Acceptance and actual recognition for the work you put in, is more than words can describe,” said James MacGregor, who won the Leader of Tomorrow award.

“It is more rewarding to give back. Even a plaque or award does not mean anything. It is just the human connections, human relationships you make with other people,” said Catherine Cooper, who won the Leadership Scholarship.

Putnam Rotary “Education Summit”

Landau and First Lady Tomblin to Speak at Putnam Rotary “Education Summit”

America’s Got Talent winner and national recording artist Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. and West Virginia First Lady Joanne Jaeger Tomblin will speak on the importance of education and how West Virginia is rising to the challenge of educating it’s youth at a special informal “Education Summit” meeting of the Putnam County Rotary Club Tuesday, March 24th starting at 11:30 AM. 

The event is free and open to the public and will be held in the community room of First State Bank located at 3754 Teays Valley Road in Hurricane, WV.  It will include remarks from both Murphy and Tomblin and a question and answer session with attendees.

Lunch will be provided by the Gallery of Teays Valley. The event is open to the public and the media.

 Murphy has often mentioned in his performances about his regrets of not finishing high school, and how the lack of a strong education helped contribute to his slide into poverty and homelessness in his early 20’s, before turning his life around and winning NBC TV’s “America’s Got Talent” by the largest voting margin in the show’s history.  Since winning America’s Got Talent, Landau has released two hit albums, toured the world and has used his celebrity to help raise over a million dollars for West Virginia charities, often for at-risk youth.  After his appearance at the Putnam Rotary event, Landau will also speak Tuesday afternoon to students at nearby Hurricane High School at 2pm.  

First Lady Tomblin has long been an advocate of higher education, including non-traditional and vocational education strategies to help better equip West Virginia’s young people for the challenges of the 21st century job market.  While serving as the state’s First Lady, Mrs. Tomblin has also done double duty, maintaining her position as President of Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College, a role she’s held for the past 15 years.  Mrs. Tomblin recently announced that she will be retiring from that post on June 30th of this year.  
 

“Being part of the Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College family for the last 33 years and serving as president for the last 15 years has truly been the opportunity of a lifetime,” Tomblin said in a recent statement. “My decision to leave my post at Southern has been an extremely difficult and emotional decision, and I will miss the great people and the students who have made this journey so enriching and worthwhile.”

She said she looks forward to working with her husband, Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, during his final years in office to help advance his initiatives.

“As First Lady, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to visit communities across the state to improve education for all West Virginians.”

“Staying Alive” Rescheduled

Staying Alive Bullying Stops Here

Staying Alive Bullying Stops Here


EVENT RESCHEDULED DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER


 

America’s Got Talent Winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. to be Keynote Speaker at Local Huntington Anti-Bullying Event Friday, March 13th

Huntington, WV – Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., the season six winner of NBC television’s “America’s Got Talent” and Logan, WV native, is well known for his singing voice when he steps up to a microphone, but on March 13th at 6:30 pm at First Congregational United Church of Christ (located at 701 5th Avenue in Huntington, WV) he will step up to the microphone for a different reason.

Murphy will be the keynote among an exciting slate of speakers at an event titled ‘Staying Alive: Bullying Stops Here.’ Murphy sees the importance of lending his voice to this topic to make life better for West Virginia students who may suffer bullying at school for any number of reasons and was eager to add his name to this event. “I know what it’s like to be bullied; I went through it myself as a kid, mostly because I was different. I was poor, I was skinny, I had a gap in my teeth, I couldn’t afford the cool shows or cool clothes. But the thing is, being different is what makes us special. I’m honored to be asked to be a part of this event, and to lend Team Landau’s support.”

Along with Murphy, Steve Williams, the Mayor of Huntington, will be present to bring a greeting to the event. Cabell County Superintendent of Schools William Smith will speak and Cora King, Miss West Virginia Teen USA 2015, will lend her voice along with other special speakers and singers.

‘Staying Alive: Bullying Stops Here’ is being sponsored and organized by Gravity, with youth ministries leader James Dismond, to present the event as ‘a community wide rally uniting youth, young adults, parents, and community leaders with resources and education towards anti-bullying.’ Dismond states that he has been impressed with the enthusiastic response to the event and believes this shows how big of a problem bullying is. His hope is that this event will give students necessary resources to cope with bullying while encouraging students, parents, teachers, administrators, and even lawmakers to open up conversation on dealing with the bullying problems that are a very real threat to our children’s education, mental health, and in some cases, even their lives.

‘Staying Alive: Bullying Stops Here’ is free and open to the public and will be followed by a fair and refreshments in Bromley Hall, located in the church basement. Organizations that offer a variety of resources to students will be present with further information. Event attendees are asked to RSVP by visiting www.GravityOutreach.com and filling out the quick and easy attendance form.

February 5th, 2015 – For release March 1st, 2015

Huntington, WV – Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., the season 6 winner of NBC television’s “America’s Got Talent” and Logan, WV native, is well known for his singing voice when he steps up to a microphone, but on March 6th at 6:30 pm at First Congregational United Church of Christ (located at 701 5th Avenue in Huntington, WV) he will step up to the microphone for a different reason.

Murphy will be the keynote among an exciting slate of speakers at an event titled ‘Staying Alive: Bullying Stops Here.’ Murphy sees the importance of lending his voice to this topic to make life better for West Virginia students who may suffer bullying at school for any number of reasons and was eager to add his name to this event. “I was a victim of bullying as a kid myself, so helping others in the same situation is near to my heart,” says Landau. “I’m honored to be part of this great event.”

Along with Murphy, Steve Williams, the Mayor of Huntington, will be present to bring a greeting to the event. Cabell County Superintendent of Schools William Smith will speak and Cora King, Miss West Virginia Teen USA 2015, will lend her voice along with other special speakers and singers.

About the Event

‘Staying Alive: Bullying Stops Here’ is being sponsored and organized by Gravity, the youth and young adult outreach ministry of First Congregational UCC. James Dismond, Gravity’s youth ministries leader, presents the event as ‘a community wide rally uniting youth, young adults, parents, and community leaders with resources and education towards anti-bullying.’

 

The event is endorsed by numerous Cabell County officials including school administrators, city leaders, church leaders, and community leaders. While the event is being held at the church, Dismond states that this is simply the venue; the event’s focus is solely on anti-bullying and will not be a ‘church service.’

 

Dismond states that he has been impressed with the enthusiastic response to the event and believes this shows how big of a problem bullying is. His hope is that this event will give students necessary resources to cope with bullying while encouraging students, parents, teachers, administrators, and even lawmakers to open up conversation on dealing with the bullying problems that are a very real threat to our children’s education, mental health, and in some cases, even their lives.

 

‘Staying Alive: Bullying Stops Here’ is free and open to the public and will be followed by a fair and refreshments in Bromley Hall, located in the church basement. Organizations that offer a variety of resources to students will be present with further information. Event attendees are asked to RSVP by visiting www.GravityOutreach.com and filling out the quick and easy attendance form.

 

Dismond encourages community attendance: “We want to pack this event to send a clear message that Huntington is a supportive, tolerant community. Bullying stops here.”
