This morning, we speak with two newly minted OSI Baltimore Community Fellows.

Eric Sorrell is the founder of ‘Fernway Outdoors,’ an outdoor education program that will offer field trips and teach wilderness skills to kids in Southwest Baltimore.

Artist Christopher KOLPEACE Johnson’s project, ‘Gentleman’s Graffiti,’ will bring young men in East Baltimore together to create art and engage in leadership development opportunities.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
Maureen Harvie is senior producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom. Whether coordinating live election night coverage, capturing the sounds of a roller derby scrimmage, interviewing veterans, or booking local authors, she is always on the lookout for the next story.
