I welcome this opportunity for our community to come together to honor the memory of the victims of the September 11 terrorist attack on our country. We also remember the values of tolerance, understanding and unity as we look forward together. It is our...

THE VOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP

In 1992, the Twenty-first Century Scholars Program was created by the State of Indiana, and Fort Wayne was selected to be a pilot city for a support site. At that time, the Wayne Township Trustee Office was chosen to be its host agency, and our duties included overseeing the financial matters and providing professional guidance when needed.

What began as a citywide program flourished into a regional one, now encompassing eight counties in northeastern Indiana. It has grown so much that, like...
