Anderson’s Call Me MISTER Program to Host “Men of Distinction” Conference

Anderson University’s Call Me MISTER program will be hosting a conference entitled “Men of Distinction” for a select group of middle school males at AU on Saturday, March 31, 2012. Five middle schools in Anderson District Five were invited to participate in the event; they were asked to select several of their students to recommend for the conference. Approximately 70 middle schoolers are expected to attend. The event will include six different sessions, led by the members of AU’s Call Me MISTER program, during the morning and conclude with lunch in AU’s Food for Thought dining space.


The Call Me MISTER program at Anderson recruits African American males to enter the field of elementary education to be character models for young learners who might not otherwise have someone in their lives serving in that role. These men have heeded the calling to be involved in the will of God in public schools to impact young lives in a positive way. All of these men believe that all students can learn, regardless of circumstances that others may deem as prohibitive to that end. The mentor for these men is Dr. Beverly McAdams, the Associate Vice President for Student Development.
