Former Eastern PA Conference Lay Leader Lenora Thompson will be honored this week by Philadelphia's KYW Newsradio as one its local Gamechangers, a program that celebrates Black History Month in February by recognizing local community heroes. Thompson, a member of Wharton-Wesley UMC in Philadelphia, will receive an award Wednesday night, Feb. 25, and then will appear on KYW TV's Talk Philly show at 12 noon on Thursday, Feb. 26.
For the third year in a row, KYW Newsradio 1060 highlighted individuals who have “changed the game” for the African-American community in the Greater Philadelphia area. Gamechangers are individuals or organizations that have used their volunteer efforts and community influence to make a significant, positive change for people of color in the previous twelve months.
