Fort Wayne Urban League Success Story

Community Involvement General  

A young woman from the Fort Wayne Urban Club is shown graduating high school.

Mariah Thomas was introduced to the Fort Wayne Urban League at the young age of 8 years old. She participated in the dance program and went on to volunteer during her high school years. The education programs at the FWUL not only encouraged Mariah to keep her grades up, but gave her the tools and resources to do so. She was a 4.0 student throughout high school. 

When it was time for Mariah to graduate from high school, John, a trusted leader at the Fort Wayne Urban League, worked with her to find scholarships that would help to offset the cost of her college education. With John’s help, and Mariah’s hard work, she was accepted into the Hudson & Holland Scholarship Program at Indiana University. This program supports high-achieving, underrepresented minorities. Because of this scholarship, and several others, Mariah pays virtually nothing for her college education. She remains an all-A student and continues to work very hard to put her education first.

When asked why she thinks the FWUL is important, Mariah shared with us, “If it wasn’t for the Urban League and what they give back to the community, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”

Mariah’s story is like many others who have been impacted by the Fort Wayne Urban League. This is why our law office is choosing to partner with the Fort Wayne Urban League in an effort to give back to an organization who gives so much.

Staying safe on the roads during the sometimes treacherous winter months really comes down to being prepared for what could happen. It’s important to at least be aware of the worst case scenarios so, if and when they do happen,...

Strange Halloween Law Suits

The Halloween season has a way of bringing out a new round of personal injury cases – ones with an entirely different, somewhat-spooky nature. With kids and adults alike dressed in costumes, pretending to be masked vigilantes or mystical characters, it can be very difficult to know what’s real and what isn’t. It can also make it more difficult to determine whether or not a situation is safe. We’d like to encourage you to stay safe this Halloween as you’re out trick-or-treating or at a...
