Stokes in the News

The Square Talk segment on the WKYC/Channel 3 Sunday morning newscast March 5 featured Tri-C President Alex Johnson talking about the yearlong commemoration honoring Mayor Stokes and Congressman Stokes.

A story posted on cleveland.com highlighted March events planned for the Stokes commemoration.

In a guest column for Crain’s Cleveland, Tri-C President Alex Johnson noted the policy achievements of Mayor Carl Stokes — particularly regarding education — that continue to influence and guide Cleveland.

We The People on WKYC/Channel 3 dedicated part of its Feb. 3 show to the Stokes commemoration. Host Tiffany Tarpley talked with Tri-C’s Lauren Onkey about the overall project before getting a “taste” of a future Stokes commemoration event — the Contemporary Soul Food Challenge — courtesy of culinary student Andrea Rashad and Chef Karen Monath.

Tri-C’s Lauren Onkey outlined the Stokes commemoration and what organizers of the initiative hope it accomplishes during a visit to the CBS Radio studios for a chat with Cleveland Connection host Michelle O’Dell.

Dozens of community organizations joined together to make the Stokes commemoration possible in 2017. A cleveland.com story by Karen Farkas highlights that collaboration as well as upcoming events.
