Fathers of students that attend Hattiesburg Public Schools were invited to eat breakfast with their children Tuesday morning.
Fathers, grandfathers, and male role models enjoyed the meal with their kids. At Lillie Burney Elementary, a few words of advice and encouragement were offered, too.
"I encourage the fathers to teach their children to be obedient, to teach them how to work and how to respect other people," said Clemon Ector, Physical Education teacher at Lillie Burney.
Hawkins, Lillie Burney, Grace Christian, Rowan, Thames, and Woodley Elementary Schools each hosted a breakfast. N.R. Burger and Hattiesburg High School also participated.
