We triumphed this Black History Month at the Institute!

The past two weeks has been monumental at First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. On February 15, Minister Lawrance Lee Evans hosted a successful Supporters Day program despite extremely cold temperatures, then drove to the Kodak Theater on the Ridge to accept an Honoree ROC Award at the 3rd Annual ROC Awards.





More high praise came this month via Minister Evans' former employer, the Rochester City School District. At the Black History Month observance, Minister Evans received the Gate Opener Award for his accomplishments in the community and educating multiple students from the Rochester City School District over forty plus years. As usual, Minister Evans credited his grandmother Martha Jordan for being where he is today.
