Christian Brubaker, 18, of Baker, will appear on “Steve Harvey” at 10 a.m. Wednesday on WAFB, Channel 9 (cable Channel 7).

Brubaker is a graduate of talk show host Harvey’s Mentoring Program for Young Men. Each year, 100 boys growing up without fathers are invited to Harvey’s Dallas ranch to teach them the principles of manhood and provide them with positive role models and mentors.

Brubaker will be on the show to extend a surprise thank-you to camp mentor Col. Nathan Banks (retired U.S. Army).

Brubaker is stationed at Ft. Benning, Georgia, and is scheduled to graduate from basic training in mid-November.
