MENtors walk draws big crowd

MENtors WalkHundreds of male mentors, from dads and grandfathers to older brothers and uncles, turned out Wednesday morning for the district’s third annual MENtors Walk.

Abram Lansing and Harmony Hill students and their mentors gathered in West End Park while Van Schaick families convened in Van Schaick Park.

“What’s really important is that each and every one of you is here for your children,” said guest speaker Chad O’Hara. “The influence that you have will last a lifetime.”

O’Hara is the program director and an on-air host at B95.5 FM.

MENtors walked their children to school and enjoyed breakfast before students made their way to class.

“To see this level of support is breathtaking,” Abram Lansing Principal Cliff Bird said.

“Traditionally in society, we see more moms in parent organizations. Most of our teachers are women. It’s just a great opportunity to show our kids, especially our boys, that the men in their lives support what they do, and support them getting a good education,” he added.
