Woodgate hosted its first ever "Real Men Are Fathers" event in which over 38 men joined Dr. Hill for an exciting evening featuring the "Men of Woodgate". Pastor Trunell D. Felder of New Faith Baptist Church International along with ten other men from the church, encouraged the fathers, grandfathers, uncles, "Big brothers" and male role models to get involved in their child's education and partner with the school. Sean Mitchell also spoke to the men. The men engaged in several activities and were united in the charge to work with Woodgate's students and Staff.
"What a great event! I'm looking forward to working with the Principal and teachers here at Woodgate. Whatever service I can provide, sign me up!" echoed the sentiments of a Kindergarten father. "So often, the mothers are here, but tonight, it's about the men and this is wonderful!" said Dr. Ben Moore, grandfather of a 3rd grader. We're looking forward to having the men come back to Woodgate and read to our students.
