The Parent Institute Of Lourdes University's "Thank a Parent" Campai

. August 21, 2016.

The Parent Institute of Lourdes University wants to increase awareness of the importance of parents in our society during Parents’ Week, September 18-24. Through its “Thank a Parent” campaign, the Parent Institute and Retired Lucas County Judge Andy Devine will extend their gratitude  to all parents to encourage their work in supporting and caring for their children.

Retired Judge Andy Devine, who helped found the Parent Institute, explains, “Our mission…is to ultimately change [the way our] culture…understands and appreciates the role of parents. I was born in 1921, and I grew up in the 20s and 30s. Back in those days…the community supported the parents, and the parents took care of the kids.”
