SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — Local dads were honored Tuesday afternoon by Shreveport City Council and Mayor Adrian Perkins for their efforts to stop fights between high school students at Southwood High School.
The “Dads on Duty” have been recognized nationally by CNN host Roland Martin and actors Will Smith and Drew Barrymore.
Just a few weeks ago, multiple fights broke out on the Shreveport high school campus, so these dads are spending time at the school to talk to kids and encourage a safe school.
The principal told the council their efforts have made a difference.
