In his time as an MPD officer, Tom Lewis was assigned to the Officer Friendly program. During his visits to schools, he spoke to students about the importance of respecting their parents and listening to their teachers. His experiences in the police department inspired him to open the doors on The Fishing School in 1990.
Mr. Lewis describes his love of working with children and families and TFS' programs today as "hard work, but Heart work."
At this year's Math and Science Night, MPD volunteers engaged with students, parents, and staff in this heart work. F
rom running activities, to sweeping the floors, to sitting down for one-on-ones with students, TFS would like to thank MPD and all of the officers who came out to our site schools to support our work.
