Overheard at Tredici






Ajay and State Treasurer Joe Torsella


The 77th State Treasurer for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Joe Torsella oversees $35 billion in revenue. This is just the latest in a career of high stakes positions for the Rhodes Scholar, Mayor Rendell-era fiscal turnaround wunderkind, indefatigable financial architect of the National Constitution Center, and putative future Gubernatorial candidate. In this encounter, Joe and Ajay examine Pennsylvania's need to invest in higher education for all, whether the time has come for a new Roosevelt to emerge on the political stage, and the critical importance of making your bed first thing in the morning.

Ajay and Hazim Hardeman


From the basketball courts of the Raymond Rosen housing development in North Philadelphia to the hallowed halls of Oxford University, Hazim Hardeman's story is as improbable as it is inspiring. Once an indifferent student struggling to make his way through a woefully under-resourced educational system, Hardeman barely made it through high school, but his mother's determination sent him on a new course; first to the Community College of Philadelphia, then to Temple University, and ultimately to the distinction of becoming Temple University's first (and as yet, only) Rhodes Scholar.
