Legendary Cubs Hall of Famer Ernie Banks Elected Honorary President of Fatherhood Educational Institute
Legendary Cubs Hall of Famer Ernie “Mr. Cub” Banks was elected Honorary President of the Fatherhood Educational Institute (FEI). FEI is a non-profit organization founded by nationally recognized family law attorney Jeffery M. Leving. The non-profit is dedicated to promoting positive fatherhood involvement in all communities.
Mr. Banks became involved with FEI because he was impressed by its outreach programs and seminars. The Cubs Hall of Famer was especially admiring of FEI’s fatherhood educational seminars, which allow men to gather together and talk about some of the stresses of modern fatherhood, as well as its Virtual Visitation Initiative, which aims to foster greater connection between children and fathers who are physically removed from their families because of disability, illness, military service or incarceration.
