“Fathers and Father Figures Being Involved” welcome students back to school
More than 30 civic leaders, pastors, police officers, and other men from the community greeted students as they arrived at three Michigan City Area Schools on Wednesday, part of a grassroots movement called “Fathers and Father Figures Being Involved”… or FBI. The back-to-school welcome was organized for Edgewood, Knapp, and Lake Hills Elementary Schools by the Michigan City Commission on the Social Status of African American Males and the Northwest Indiana Ministers’ Conference. Marty Corley, who is a member of the MCAS Board of Trustees, was instrumental in planning the effort. Corley says he hopes that the FBI will remain active at Edgewood again this year and will partner with Knapp and Lake Hills on more activities throughout the year, as well.
