Jeff Shulman continues his look at finding community in a dynamic city. In today’s episode, UW football Hall of Famer Greg Lewis shares his community work at the Meredith Mathews YMCA, where he serves as executive director. Lewis was the first Doak Walker Award winner for the nation’s top running back in college football and was an important piece of the Rose Bowl winning Husky team. Lewis shares why he has chosen to lead a non-profit and the initiatives he hopes will foster a sense of community in the Central District. In the interview, Lewis connects how the experience of stepping onto the field at the Rose Bowl compares to the work he is doing with the YMCA. Today’s episode also features author Cecile Andrews who talks about her circle of simplicity and the work she is doing to bring small groups together for conversation. Andrews has lived in Seattle for decades and is working to build a sense of community in the Phinneywood area. The interviews offer some interesting tidbits of history and give perspectives on where Seattle has been and where it is going. Both guests offer perspectives from different neighborhoods about growth, change, and community.
