%\ &$66,'< :+,7( 6WDII :ULWHU Kosciusko County faces a serious crisis when it comes to child care. Between abandoned children and the lack of affordable, accessible day care, parenting is hard. The Coalition of Churches for Orphan Care began in 2019, but was worn down during the height of COVID-19. Now with the county returning to some normalcy, it is reorganizing and refocusing their efforts as strongly as ever. The Room at the Table Foster Closet is a Department of Child Services recommended program hosted upstairs at the Winona Lake Grace Brethren Church, thanks to Pastor Dave Rank. The closet is open 2-4 p.m. the second Thursday of each month or by appointment if needed. The coalition was a yearslong dream Janice Workman had hoped for years would become a reality, and lucky for both her and county residents, she made it happen. Having fostered over 100 children herself, Workman understood the importance of providing a positive experience for vulnerable children. There are currently five churches involved in the coalition: • Winona Lake Grace Brethren Church, led by Pastor Dave Rank, which hosts the Room at the Table Foster Closet. 7KH )RVWHU &ORVHW KROGV DQ DUUD\ RI FKLOG FDUH SURGXFWV DQG PHUFKDQGLVH LQFOXGLQJ FORWKHV VKRHV WR\V IRRG DQG PRUH IRU FKLOGUHQ RI DOO DJHV • Pleasant View Bible Church, led by Pastors Jason Alley and Mike Hontz.

In an attempt to garner more recognition and raise community awareness, the coalition will be hosting a concert 2 p.m. Saturday, July 30, at Warsaw Community Church. Christian band For the Fatherless, hailing from Nashville, Tenn., will perform. The goal of the concert is to educate members of the community about what needs to be done for vulnerable children and what they can do to help. Admission is free, but love donations are appreciated. Workman said, “Our goal at the ministry is to give free supplies to foster families in need.” According to Alley, “We all want to do whatever we can for kids. ... Jesus would want us to do this.” For more information how you can help or to sign up as a volunteer, contact Janice Workman at jeworkman@comcast.net or visit wlgbc.com/roomatthetable.

KNOW YOUR NEIGHBOR

Genealogist helps preserve family histories %\ /$85,( /(&+/,71(5 (GLWRU ,Q &KLHI “I became interested in genealogy about 30 years ago,” stated Faye Myers, Warsaw. “My fatherin-law always told stories about his grandfather who served in the Civil War. “The family believed he was wounded at Gettysburg and that was why he had a limp throughout his life. Facts are very important to me. I decided to check out this information.” And that’s just what she did. She and her husband, Bill, took a trip to Washington, D.C. “We visited the National Archives and saw some of the letters great-grandpa sent back and forth from Washington to get his pension. We visited Gettysburg and saw his name, Jonathon Barron, listed on the Pennsylvania Civil War monument. But upon closer research, we found that his leg injury actually happened when he was out chopping wood with another soldier. His friend’s ax head fell off and hit him in the leg. He was in the hospital for several months because of that accident.” Now people can save the legwork and do much of their family research online. “But I still find there’s a lot of information missing if a person is not willing to travel and search out

the facts and details, such as walking through old cemeteries, going through old books, papers, census records and family Bible records.” Another family myth was that Myers’ great-grandmother Minnie was an Indian princess. “After doing the research and checking my DNA through ancestry.com, I found out there is no Native American blood in our family. Instead, I have 42% Eastern European ancestry.” When beginning a family genealogy study, Myers said, one should start by writing down the family history they know. “List your parents, grandparents. Then try talking to those older members of the family and ask about their lives. Listen to the family stories, but realize they are not always 100% true.” Last summer, Myers printed up booklets tracing her husband’s family history back to the Revolutionary War. “I handed it out at a family reunion. Because Bill can trace his family roots back to the Revolution, he is now part of the Sons of the American Revolution. To be a member of that group, a person must have documentation they are descended from a Patriot who served during the Revolutionary War.” Doing family research gives ancestors recognition again. It reveals a bit of their personali-

when she embarked on the journey. What courage that must have taken.” After she retired from the work world, Myers started volunteering for the Kosciusko County Historical Society. “I work with a small group of delightful ladies. The genealogy library is at the Old Jail Museum. People come to us for help in doing their family genealogies.” Myers was also part of the team who created the book, “Schools of Kosciusko County, 1835-1975,” published in 2016. The Bicentennial Legacy Project contains pictures and stories of the county’s schools. She concluded, “I love the feeling of accomplishment I get in preserving history for future generations. We need to remember our ancestors and our historical roots.”

Kosciusko REMC broke attendance records when they welcomed 1,342 cars of members and their families on June 9 for the electric cooperative’s second annual drive-thru meeting. The event was the 82nd annual meeting for KREMC which, prior to 2021, was held in person. Attendees entered the KREMC facility, located at 370 S. 250E,Warsaw, and proceeded down the driveway under an American flag suspended by two KREMC trucks. Many said they were emotionally moved by the display. Employees then greeted the members and families with warm smiles as they drove through lanes, where they received a $10 bill credit, placed their vote for board of director candidates, received a pack of light bulbs as a gift and enjoyed a meal to go for everyone in their car. “Fast,” “efficient” and “fun” were words attendees used to describe the event on social media following the meeting. After lanes closed, votes were tallied for the board of directors election. Incumbents Tony Fleming and Dan Tucker were reelected. Candidates Loretta Schafer and Todd Smith were elected and will assume the two open positions on the board. Winners were also chosen from a list of registered applicants by random drawing for the John H. Anglin and 4-H scholarships. The John H. Anglin Memorial Scholarship rewards winning students with $1,000 for their upcoming year of further education, and the 4-H scholarship offers $350 to fund the projects of local 4-H participants. The 10 winners of the John H. Anglin Memorial Scholarship were Aimee Hagg, Taylor Hinson, Ashley Irwin, Jacob Kissling, Arrington Krull, Ty Legan, Molly Lewis, Katherine Ousley, Mackenzie Schannep

Legacy Family Health Care focuses on provider-patient relationship %\ /($+ 6$1'(5 6WDII :ULWHU Legacy Family Health Care wants to bring “the (health care) relationship back to the provider and the patient.” The Kosciusko Chamber of Commerce had a ribbon-cutting for the business on Saturday, May 21, which was also the date of its grand opening. It’s located at 308 S. Scott St., Warsaw, and has been in operation since February, having not had a grand opening earlier related to COVID-19 and finishing work on the building. Legacy functions differently from other health care offices, said its co-owner Kyle McDaniel. “Legacy Family Health Care is Warsaw’s first direct primary care center,” she said. “She (coowner Lindsay Kreps) and I had previously worked at other practices together, and having worked in traditional medicine for 15-20 years, we know there’s a better way to do it.”

McDaniel explained how direct primary care works. “It takes the relationship back to the provider and the patient,” she said. “Direct primary care is a grassroots movement nationwide. There’s over 1,700 in the United States, there’s 30 in Indiana, but we are the first for Warsaw, so we do not participate with third party payers. We do not accept insurance.” Legacy also is not part of any hospital network. “We are independent and therefore she (Kreps) has the autonomy to practice how she chooses and always putting the patient in the forefront of the need as opposed to checking off a list to meet insurance requirements,” said McDaniel. She also explained how payment works for Legacy’s services. “Services are available either à la carte, pay for a fee or for direct membership, so you can do membership and that membership has one flat fee, which

ISP’s Chad Sherwood retiring after 25 years Indiana State Police Master Trooper Detective Chad Sherwood is set to retire after a career with the Indiana State Police that &+$' spanned a 6+(5:22' quarter century. Sherwood, an Elkhart County native, is a graduate of Elkhart Central High School. He went on to earn a degree in physical education from Anderson University. Sherwood began his career with the Indiana State Police after being selected to attend the Indiana State Police 55th Recruit Academy, graduating in 1997. Sherwood’s first assignment was to patrol on the Indiana Toll Road. In the fall of 2001, Sherwood transferred to the Bremen District, where he patrolled until being promoted to the rank of corporal in December 2004.

Sherwood served as a corporal at the Toll Road Post through December 2006 before returning to the Bremen Post as a detective. In 2008, Sherwood voluntarily returned to patrol duties for four years before returning to the Bremen Post Detective Bureau in 2012, where he remained until retirement. During his tenure with the State Police, Sherwood has served as a field training officer and on the tactical intervention platoon. Sherwood has investigated many high-profile cases throughout the years and earned an award in 2014 for Investigation of the Year for an investigation he conducted into a double murder and police action shooting that occurred in a local grocery store. When asked to sum up his career, Sherwood said he does not even know where to start because there has been so much. Sherwood’s last day was Tuesday, June 14. He will make the trip to Indianapolis to turn in his car and equipment before going “1042” for the last time.

Art in Action —

Surprising hidden artists (continuing series) %\ '$5/$ 0&&$0021 DQG '(($11$ 085$6., Adversity affects people in different ways. Some succumb while others succeed. Actor Tony Curtis was born with the name Bernard Schwartz in 1925 on a hot June 3 day. He was born in the area called the Bronx where his Jewish parents had moved when they migrated from Hungary. Curtis’s father, Emanual Schwartz, owned a tailor shop. The family lived in a crowded apartment scrunched behind the shop where the three sons shared one bedroom and the parents shared the other. The boys suffered beatings from their schizophrenic mother while their father toiled tailoring. In the great depression, when Curtis was only 8 years old, the destitute parents had to turn the boys over to a state institution where they were attacked by other children because of their heritage. Curtis was grieved when his older brother, Julius, was hit by a truck and killed at only 12 years of age. These difficulties in life affected Curtis, who determined to improve on his circumstances. He got himself enrolled in a good high school in Manhattan and saw the military as a way to move up in life. Upon graduation he joined the U.S. Navy, served honorably during World War II, and once he was eligible for discharge, he got himself enrolled in acting lessons. At the acting school he

found himself in good company with a fellow student from their former high school — Walter Matthau. From this point the acting career took off. He renamed himself Tony Curtis, had several successful roles, and also married well-known starlet Janet Leigh after working as her costar in “Houdini.” The personal life did not stay stable, likely the residue of such a traumatic childhood. Curtis was married a total of six times and had several romances with famous actresses. He also struggled with addictions that affected his career greatly. He eventually recognized he needed help and decided to straighten out his life. During his rehab he fell in love, not with starlets, but with the painting he had always done as a hobby. His work became well known and sought after, bringing in high dollars. His art work became so successful one of his pieces is now in the permanent collection in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. His style became recognizable and was very unique. His technique in oil paint has been recognized by many critics and art experts as superb. Painting saved him and gave him an outlet where he could find much comfort and happiness. It has that effect on many. Curtis died of cardiac arrest on September 30, 2010, at the age of 85, in Henderson, Nevada. He was survived by his sixth wife, Jill Vandenberg, his daughters Kelly Lee, Jamie Lee,

Kosciusko Home Care & Hospice now offers palliative care %\ /($+ 6$1'(5 6WDII :ULWHU Just because a person is suffering with a serious illness or condition doesn’t mean they don’t want to receive care. Kosciusko County Home Care & Hospice’s new program aims to help with that. The Kosciusko Chamber of Commerce had a ribbon-cutting ceremony outside the nonprofit’s office in the K21 Health Services Pavilion, 1515 Provident Drive, Warsaw, on Wednesday, June 15, to celebrate it adding palliative care. Kosciusko Home Care & Hospice added the new service in January, said the organization’s executive director, Glenn Hall,

mentioning part of the reason was to meet the desire for it locally, as nobody else was providing in-home palliative care in Kosciusko County. “So at the end of 2021, we just made a conscious decision for a variety of reasons — health care is changing, reimbursement is changing, it’s hard to get staff — so we looked at what Kosciusko County needed, and they needed in-home palliative care,” he said. “Palliative care is that service for those patients who are either chronically ill … and maybe they’re terminal. They’re not pursuing aggressive treatment, but they’re just mentally not ready for hospice yet,” explained Hall.

He said the organization can offer therapy and health care to patients through palliative care and later they can opt to use Kosciusko Home Care & Hospice’s services if they chose to. “They’re still fighting to live, but they’re probably not going to get any better,” said Hall regarding palliative care patients. “Now our goal is to help them maintain as long as they can. That’s also the goal with hospice. … People equate hospice with death; well, hospice is about comfort care for those who are dying. It’s not about helping people die, it’s about helping people live comfortably until they die.” Hall noted Kosciusko Home Care & Hospice’s services were also about providing support for their patients’ families. For the new program, Hall said they trained current staff members how to provide the care. Shelley Holderman, who previously was a part-time hospice nurse for the organization, now serves as clinical community liaison, helping inform people about the program. Hall said social care workers who assist with Kosciusko Home Care & Hospice’s patients are now helping its palliative care patients as well. “That’s critical for helping them to navigate (the) health care system,” said Hall. He noted Kosciusko Home Care & Hospice is still serving its Veterans Affairs patients. “Our VA patients who were getting traditional home care, we kept those, because No. 1, we feel it’s very important to support our veterans, and No. 2, most of them are chronically ill,” said Hall. With the new program, Kosciusko Home Care & Hospice aims to serve five palliative care patients a day. To learn more about utilizing Kosciusko Home Care & Hospice’s services, call (574) 372-3401 or visit koshomecare.org.

Cardinal Services board of directors has named Vickie Lootens as executive director, effective July 1, after accepting Matthew Boren’s resignation from the position. “We’re thankful to Matt for all he has done to help Cardinal rebound from difficult times and prepare for a thriving future, and we wish him well,” said Cardinal Board Chair Anne Hill. “We are confident that Vickie’s deep love for Cardinal Services and its purpose make her an ideal choice as Cardinal’s next leader, building on the progress of the past year.” Ongoing initiatives at Cardinal Services include creating new employment pathways for persons served; expanding and enhancing services, such as new behavior consulting services and club rooms in day services; and completing the Ability Campaign to support facility renovations. “It has been an honor and a blessing to be part of the Cardinal story thus far,” Boren said. “I am confident the organization is moving in a healthy direction full of opportunities, and I look forward to seeing what the future brings.” Lootens has been with Cardinal Services for more than 17 years, starting in employment services, then shifting to the development team where she currently serves as chief development officer. “I am honored to have the opportunity to lead Cardinal Services and build on the tremendous momentum of the past year,” Lootens said. “I look forward to being part of the effort to bring Cardi-

The Kosciusko Chamber of Commerce celebrated the opening of the Huntington County-based bank’s second location at 445 W. 250N, Warsaw, with a ribbon-cutting on Wednesday, June 8. The location opened May 16. Zahn noted some of the employees there also work at the other Warsaw location at 402 E. Center St. “All of the employees we try to hire from the Kosciusko area so we have roots here in the community,” said Zahn. “They know the community and they know what the needs are and we just try to meet those needs as a financial institution.

Owen Family Funeral Home enters new chapter Rumors have been swirling for months that Richard and Kim Owen, owners of Owen Family Funeral Home in Syracuse and North Webster, are retiring. Owen is not retiring, although he may cut his hours back a bit as he has sold both funeral homes and the crematory to Cory Benz, owner of Titus Funeral Home in Warsaw. Owen will be staying on as funeral director, managing both the Syracuse and North Webster funeral homes. “I’m still doing what I love to do, taking care of families,” Owen said. He’s been a funeral director for 37 years and plans to continue. Owen and Benz have been working together as small business owners for the last few years. Benz made the offer to buy Owen out “when he was ready,” Benz said. “I think we make an excellent team,” Owen said. “I chose Cory because we’re like-minded. He’s going to take care of families. He’s local. He’s not a big corporate investor,” Owen explained. Both share a common history. Owen worked at the same funeral home Benz trained at, just at a different time. The staff at Owen’s have been offered their current positions, and while some may be cutting their hours back and others increasing them, all of them are

staying on. “So you’ll see all the familiar faces,” Benz said. Those coming to Owen Family Funeral Home in Syracuse or North Webster may see some of the Titus staff, but the Owen name will remain on the door and the phone number will remain the same. “I think the crematory is important,” Benz said. “It’s the only crematory in the county.” “That’s important. Your loved one never leaves our care,” Owen said. Both men are certified crematory operators. Titus started in Warsaw in 1956 and can track its roots back to 1937. Owen opened the Syracuse funeral home in 2005 after starting in the business in 1985. “He was already serving families for 20 years,” Benz said. “I always looked at this as a ministry for me, taking care of families,“ Owen said. The North Webster funeral home opened in 2010; Kosciusko County Cremation Services opened in 2015. Letters explaining the sale of the business recently went out to those who preplanned their funerals with Owen Family Funeral Home. Both Benz and Owen stressed that those who preplanned their funerals through Owen will have their wishes honored and protected. “Those directives will be followed as they were intended,” Benz said.

The COVID-19 pandemic saw a rise in reports of scammers pretending to be from government agencies. While reports slowed since peaking in early 2021, victims lost more than twice as much money, according to new research by the Better Business Bureau. The BBB warns people to use caution if they are contacted by a government agency demanding money or offering a government grant for a fee. After the BBB published an indepth study in 2020 to educate the public about how to detect government impostor scams, reports to the Federal Trade Commission soared. In 2021, consumers reported losses of more than $445 million in government impostor and government grant scams, up from $175.4 million reported in 2020. Likewise, BBB Scam Tracker data showed victims of government grant scams lost more money in 2021 than in the previous year. This type of scam is one of the top 10 riskiest scams reported to Scam Tracker, according to the 2021 BBB Scam Tracker Risk Report. Scam Tracker reports also showed government impostor scams as the second-most reported scams by businesses in 2021. A Grand Rapids woman said she received a Facebook message from a friend about a government grant. The fake agent had her share personal information over the phone to “prove her identity.” After being told she qualified, she was told she had to pay $800 to receive a $50,000 grant. The scammer told her she could pay with gift cards, bitcoin or CashApp. She asked the scammer to remove her number from his list but he refused. “Scammers look to take advantage of individuals who find themselves vulnerable following the pandemic,” says Lisa Frohnapfel, president and CEO of the BBB Serving Western Michigan. “Be wary of unsolicited calls, texts, emails or letters and investigate the legitimacy of an offer with a trusted source like the BBB before you act.” A Lansing-area woman re-

ceived a phone call claiming there was fraudulent activity connected to her Social Security number and needed to give her birthdate and Social Security number to verify her identity. The scammer told her if she complied, they would read the charges against her. She told the scammer she did not feel comfortable giving her personal information over the phone, and the scammer hung up on her. That’s when she knew it was a scam. The woman said she is still getting the same phone call a year later. The biggest hurdle for those trying to prosecute these scammers is most of the scammers are overseas. BBB’s initial study on this topic showed many of these government-related scams originated in India. Types Of Government Imposter Scams • Social Security Administration: This is the most commonly spoofed government entity. Scammers warn victims their identity has been stolen, then ask them to verify their social security number and other personal information over the phone. • Law enforcement or federal agent: Some scammers pose as law enforcement and threaten immediate arrest if demands aren’t met. They may even ask for payment in gift cards to “solve” the problem. • IRS: Imposters call and threaten arrest unless back taxes are paid. Most reports to BBB Scam Tracker are from people who lost money while filing for an Employee Identification Number from websites that looked like they were official. • Government grants: Scammers use hacked social media accounts to tell victims they qualify for a free grant that only costs a small fee to receive. Once the first payment is sent, the scammer continues to add various fees. The consumer never receives the grant and loses whatever money and personal information they sent to the scammers. Method Of Payment While gift cards are still the method of payment of choice for

scammers, more are beginning to turn to cryptocurrency. The FTC reported more than $22 million in losses from government imposter scam victims using cryptocurrency as payment in 2021. For more about cryptocurrency scams, read BBB’s study on the topic. Tips to Avoid Government Impostor Or Government Grant Scams • A government agency will not call you. Government agencies like the Social Security Administration, IRS or FBI do not call people with threats or promises of money. The SSA will never threaten you because of an identity theft problem and Social Security numbers are never “suspended.” • Do not always trust your caller ID. Scammers can spoof numbers, making it appear as if they are calling from a government agency. Check with the real agency by going to the agency’s website directly, then click “contact us” to find out how to connect. Do not trust numbers that may be included in emails, text messages or internet searches. • Do not click on links inside a text message or email claiming to be from a government agency. Scammers can lead you to fake sites that look legitimate. • Never provide your bank account or other personal information to anyone who calls you. The IRS generally makes its first contact with people about taxes by regular mail — not by phone. • Never pay with a gift card, wire transfer or cryptocurrency. No government agency will take those forms of payment. • Don’t pay for a “free” government grant. If you must pay money for a “free” grant, it isn’t free. Go to grants.gov for lists of official grants. Report Potential Scams • Better Business Bureau. File a report with BBB Scam Tracker. • Social Security Administration. Submit a report through the Inspector General’s online form. • IRS. Fill out the IRS Impersonation Scam form at tigta.gov, or call TIGTA at (800) 366-4484. • Federal Trade Commission. 877-FTC-HELP or ftc.gov.

Matthew Lehman earns Global Seal of Biliteracy Matthew Lehman, a keyboard performance major at Bob Jones University, recently earned the Global Seal of Biliteracy for Functional Fluency in Spanish after successfully completing the AVANT 4S Assessment. Lehman is a resident of New Paris. To qualify for the Global Seal, students complete an approved proficiency exam that evaluates their ability to read, write, listen

and speak a specific language. They must achieve a minimum intermediate-mid rating in all four skills. “The fact that these students have achieved this level of the Global Seal of Biliteracy after only four semesters of language study is commendable,” said Dr. Amos Kasperek, Division of World Languages and Cultures faculty. “We are so proud of their

hard work and excited for the opportunities in work and service that this micro-credential allows.” The Global Seal of Biliteracy is an international credential that conveys proficiency with language skills in two or more languages. It enables educators across the world to quickly validate a student’s language skills to provide appropriate placement in a language program, award

college credit and increase scholarship opportunities. The seal allows employers to verify students’ language skills and be confident they possess valuable soft skills linked to language learners. In a globally interconnected marketplace, language credentials may also result in pay differentials and increased employment opportunities for students.

Holcomb calls for returning state reserve funds to Hoosiers Gov. Eric Holcomb recently announced a plan to return $1 billion of state reserves to Hoosier taxpayers, following higher than expected revenue performance this fiscal year. Each taxpayer would collect about $225 in addition to $125 Hoosiers are currently receiving from the state’s automatic taxpayer refund. All told, each eligible Hoosier would receive about $350; a married couple

filing jointly would receive about $700. “Hoosiers have real needs right now during this period of high inflation, from the gas pump to buying groceries, and everyone should benefit from the state’s success,” said Holcomb. The governor has outlined his plan with legislative leaders. “I’ve met with Speaker (Todd)

Huston and Senator (Rodric) Bray and have asked them to discuss getting a billion dollars back into Hoosier hands with their colleagues,” said Holcomb. “I’ve committed to work with them to call a special session before the end of June to take action to align this second round of returns with our current ATR.” The state’s reported revenues for May, released recently, were

“GABE STRONG”

$209 million over forecast. For 11 months of the fiscal year, revenues are $1.075 billion over forecast. If approved, an additional deposit would be made to the bank accounts of eligible Hoosiers, just like the current ATR. For those who will receive paper checks beginning in August, one check for $350 for individual taxpayers, or $700 for those filing jointly, would be issued.

Indiana Board of Education approves new standards The Indiana State Board of Education has approved new K-12 Indiana Academic Standards in science and computer science, as well as academic standards for a new middle school civics course. Indiana’s new science stan-

dards reflect similar content areas as Indiana’s previous 2016 standards, with an increased focus on supporting active student engagement in science learning. This includes updates to Indiana’s science standards that:

An Encounter with Thomas Jefferson to take place Sunday, June 26 Chautauqua-Wawasee is inviting the public for an “Encounter with Thomas Jefferson,” the man who defined American independence. World renowned Jefferson re-enactor, J.D. Sutton, as 77-year-old Jefferson, is retired but still busy. The “encounter” is set in 1821. Jefferson is looking back on his life, reflecting on his “services” to our country, the things he’s been able to accomplish as well as things left undone. He’s invited you to his home, so he can explain the events of his life. The performance is free to attend, set for 4:30-5:30 p.m. Sunday, June 26, at the Wawasee High

School auditorium in Syracuse. Members of the Indiana’s Daughters of the American Revolution and Indiana’s Sons of the American Revolution have been invited and many plan to attend. Beginning at 7:30 p.m. that evening, join Chautauqua-Wawasee on the lawn at Oakwood Resort Inn for the Fort Wayne Philharmonic’s Patriotic Pops concert. Bring a lawn chair or blanket. Be sure to stop by the Chautauqua tent to receive a free patriotic gift. For up-to-date information, visit chautauquawawasee.org or the Chautauqua-Wawasee Facebook page or call (574) 377-7543.

• Reflect science as it is practiced and experienced in the real world • Build logically from kindergarten through grade 12 • Focus on deeper understanding as well as application of content • Integrate practices, crosscutting concepts and core ideas Indiana’s civics standards will support a new civics class students will take during the second semester of sixth grade, building upon citizenship standards in earlier grades. The new standards focus on instructing students on the foundations of government, functions of government and the role of citizens. To support these new sixth-grade standards, some existing social studies standards have been rearranged to be taught in either seventh or eighth grade. Indiana Academic Standards provide a guide of knowledge and skills students should build across all grade levels and provide a basis for schools’ locally established curriculum. Each standard is reviewed once every six years through a process that includes input from parents, educators and other stakeholders. Drafted standards are then available for public comment before being finalized and approved by the SBOE. In addition to this review and public comment process, Indiana’s middle school civics standards were reviewed by the newly created Indiana Civics Education Commission and the Civics Standards Committee, established in 2021 by House Enrolled Act 1384. The Indiana Department of Education will make resources and guidance available to schools to support implementation of these standards. Indiana’s new science and civics standards will be fully effective in Indiana schools by the 2023-2024 school year.

Each Thanksgiving morning since 2004 faithful supporters show up for the “I’m Thankful Four,” a four-mile road run to benefit the Kelsey Mikel Memorial Foundation, which provides two scholarships to NorthWood High School seniors. The first is a $1,500 one-time scholarship to a senior member of the school’s yearbook staff and the second, the “Dreams Come True” award, given to a senior “with passion, vision and dreams, who has plans to impact the world in positive ways.” The scholarship provides ( 4V[OL $1,000 annually for four years to a senior NorthWood Y /L -VY ;OL )V`U student who applies and is then selected by the nineZ ElkAfter person board, which includes Mikel. year’s o Edithis :LL 7HNL tion Reachin awards are given, Mikel said theVol. foundation have ch g Elk 35, No.will hart, Kos 3 provided more than $105,000 in aid to students. ciusko, Nob The annual run and walk, which began only seven le And LaG months after Kelsey’s death thanks to the organization www.seniorli range Counties of family friends, has grown into a popular Thanksgivfenewspaper s.com ing morning event that attracts hundreds of runners, walkers and supporters each year. The event, which was held virtually in 2020 and both in-person and virtually in 2021, plans to return to a full in-person format this November. The Mikels have been active in many other organizations to help preserve their memories of Kelsey. They have been active in the Indiana Donor Network, which helps facilitate organ, tissue and eye donation and transplants across the country. They are also active with the organization’s annual “Gift of Life Celebration,” at which Mikel has played an integral role as its emcee for several years. “August 21 is a day that I’ve always allowed myself to be in a bad mood,” Mikel said, referring to the anniversary of his daughter’s death. “Last year on August 21, my daughter, Mattie, gave birth to our first grandchild. It has allowed me to redefine that day.” Mikel said one of his wife’s biggest fears was people wouldn’t remember Kelsey. Through their efforts and the support of their community, it is assured that her memory will continue to live on.

New scholarship benefits special education students One year after its creation, Indiana’s newest scholarship fund is ready to launch. The Indiana Education Scholarship Account Program joins the state’s catalog of education opportunities and is designed for families seeking to take control of their student’s academic journeys. The application window will open for eligible students beginning June 27. “After so much preparation, input and study, we are thrilled to announce the launch of the

Indiana ESA Program,” said Treasurer of State Kelly Mitchell, who oversees the program. “Families will have more opportunities to meet their child’s individual education needs by taking control of the resources they are entitled to through an Indiana ESA account. I encourage all eligible Hoosiers to consider applying.” The ESA Program provides tax-free scholarship funds to eligible students for pre-approved education expenses such as tu-

ition, therapies, assessments and fee-for-service transportation to spend with pre-approved educational service providers. Funds are not counted as income for families of recipients, nor do funds impact other forms of financial aid (e.g., Medicaid waivers). The application window for eligible students is June 27 through Aug. 5. Applications can be found online at in.gov/tos/inesa. To be eligible for ESA funds,

students must meet the following requirements: Be a resident of Indiana, be between 5-22 years old, require special education services and have an Individualized Education Program, Service Plan or Choice Special Education Plan. Annual income may not exceed 300% of the federal free and reduced lunch income qualification. Applications are open for providers now, and can be found on the program’s application page at in.gov/tos/inesa/.

The Indiana ESA Program will provide students with disabilities throughout Indiana access to funds to set up an educational environment that best meets their learning needs. Parents of eligible students, or emancipated eligible students, will have the opportunity to spend dedicated scholarship money on approved educational programs, therapies, services, tuition and fees and other expenses related to the student’s education.
