The National Urban Technology Center (Urban Tech) honored outstanding community leaders Dr. Mehmet Oz and Stephen C. Byrd at the 2008 Urban Tech fundraising gala held on June 4 in New York City. Urban Tech was founded in 1995 by Patricia Bransford to assist in closing the 'digital divide' in urban communities by providing access to technology.
Dr. Mehmet Oz is an internationally renowned heart surgeon and the author of You: The Owner's Manual. He is also a frequent contributor on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Discovery Health, and CNN.
Stephen C. Byrd is the producer of the first all-African American production of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” and has more than 27 years of experience on Wall Street in investment banking.

The 2008 Corporate Leadership Award was presented to The Wachovia Corporation for their work to improve financial literacy.
Have a fabulous Friday!!
