Billy Ray Shirley III
April 3, 1994 - August 27, 2011

Billy Ray was a teenager who dreamed of a community center. After his life was cut short by gun violence, his mother, brother and friends became Team Billy Ray and sparked the momentum that led to the Eastside Community Center.

Billy Ray was fond of saying "I got this!" whenever someone needed a hand. The Eastside Community Center is proof that when young people dream big, anything is possible - You got this!

Team Billy Ray is: Rajah Cartright, Jaimie Jimmy Cheng, Breanna Conner-Daves, Chasity Davis, Shalisa Hayes (Mama Shay), L'Shray Jones, Jasmin McCane, Ja'Mez Person, A'Jee Randle, Kanisha Richardson, Matthew Trinh, Aislinn Turner, Richard Wallace, Briana Williams, Dasia Williams, Ashley VanPevenage
