Upchurch is the oldest person living person in Northwest Indiana with cerebral palsy, and though he may be 75 years old with numerous challenges, he lives a full and vibrant life at Moses Caregiver Home in South Haven.

At the Porter County Career and Technical Center, students come with some awesome attributes. Some students even come in and already have experience with the class they’re taking.
Educators fill an important role in our children’s lives, helping shape who they are and who they will become in the future, from supporting them academically and emotionally to providing them with guidance to decide their future careers.
