On Tuesday, September 4, at 7:30 am, as the students of Fisher Magnet Upper Academy returned to school, Men of Courage suited up and stood ready to welcome them and cheer them on for a successful school year.
Each student was greeted with cheerful smiles, high fives, handshakes and positive affirmations to encourage them to start of the year right.
It was no surprise to see Men of Courage greeting students as the Ford Resource Engagement Center (FREC) is located inside the school. Students get to reap benefits and support from FREC Signature Programs like Men of Courage year-round.

When asked how he was impacted by seeing the Men of Courage greeting him at the door, 8th grader Julon Baker, said, “I felt welcomed. I’m glad you guys were here and its like I can see what I can be one day.”
In addition to getting students off on the right track with the early morning rally, the back-to-school event included free haircuts, a micro-forum, and opportunities for students to stop in for one-on-one conversations throughout the day.
