INDIANAPOLIS — It's one of the few school programs that never closed during the COVID-19 shutdown.

The Newcomer Program is open year round to students arriving in Indianapolis from all over the world.

Among the school's educators, one man is passionate about breaking barriers and demanding excellence in the classroom every single day.

This month, in September, he is the recipient of the Jefferson Award for Multiplying Good.
