    Episode 13: Tim Kruse

    Tim Kruse might have the coolest job in the world! As a lead rigger, he has toured with some A List entertainers, like Alan Jackson and Incubus. But when he's not working 16 hours a day in venues across the country, or sleeping in a tour bus, Tim calls Greenville, Texas, home. And while he's home, he's not just sitting on the couch. He's investing into this community in a very special way. Tim and his wife proudly spearhead the Greenville Flags project. #powerofcommunity

    Episode 12: Coach Darren Duke

    Episode 12: Coach Darren Duke

    When Darren Duke took over as head football coach at Greenville High School, he was excited to "restore the roar" throughout the community. In 2019, his team started to do that. Now, it's time for the Lions to build on that momentum in 2020 - right in the middle of a global pandemic. Coach Duke is optimistic that there will be a season, and he's confident his football team will rise to the occasion when they do hit the field. #powerofcommunity

    Episode 10: Valedictorian Wyatt Spivey

    Episode 10: Valedictorian Wyatt Spivey

    There are a lot of layers to Wyatt Spivey's story. Over the last 18 months, a lot of those layers are heartbreaking. In January 2019, he lost his dad. His senior year at Greenville High School was cut short by Covid-19. That same global pandemic destroyed his first and only season on the varsity baseball team. But all of those tragic layers do not define the Class of 2020 valedictorian from Greenville. During our conversation, his courage and strength shined through. #powerofcommunity

    Episode 9: Dr. LaVelle Hendricks (Texas A&M-Commerce)

    Episode 9: Dr. LaVelle Hendricks (Texas A&M-Commerce)

    This was an important episode of "The Lighter Side," and Dr. LaVelle Hendricks – professor at Texas A&M-Commerce and civil rights advocate in Hunt County – was the perfect guest for this show. Like every episode of this community podcast, we heard Dr. Hendricks' story, but then we discussed Covid-19 and the social and racial injustices still plaguing our country. #powerofcommunity
