Warner Music Group executive vice president Kevin Liles visited Temple recently with a message of perseverance, determination and hope.

Liles, former president and CEO of Def Jam Records, discussed how he rose from unpaid intern to a top executive at one of the largest music companies in the world.

In addition to signing copies of his new book in the Great Court, Liles presented a $2,500 check to the Main Campus Program Board for outstanding work in student programming, enhancing campus life and helping “Make It Happen” (the title of his book) for students throughout the year.

As part of last weekend’s Homecoming festivities, the Office of Community Service hosted its annual Temple Cares Day on Sunday, Oct. 16.

More than 50 students, administrators and staff fanned out into communities neighboring Temple to sweep the streets and pick up trash.

Clad in red Temple gear, the group worked between Broad and 17th streets and Norris and Susquehanna streets.

This Saturday, Oct. 22, nearly 300 students are set to participate in Philly Cares Day, a citywide effort to repair and beautify Philadelphia’s public schools. For more information, visit www.temple.edu/community_service.
