Levin graduate Waverly Willis (BA ’13), owner of Urban Kutz Barbershop, has partnered with the Cleveland Department of Public Heath (CDPH) to host two COVID-19 vaccination clinics at both of his barbershop locations this month. An article by News 5 Cleveland recently reported that people of color are getting vaccinated at a lower rate than other populations, and Waverly has made strides toward bringing vaccines to people in his community. Waverly shared that he is passionate about taking care of forgotten populations like the homeless, mentally ill, and addicted. His story reflects how his Levin experienced shaped his role in public service and showcases how public service can be infused in many walks of life.
