ROCHELLE The Parents Resource Network at Rochelle Township High School invites RTHS parents and members of the community to a special Martin Luther King Jr. presentation by Juan Ortiz on Monday, Jan. 20 at 7 p.m. in the RTHS Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.

Ortiz grew up in a home ruled by a verbally and physically abusive father, whose drug and alcohol use impacted everyone in the house: Juan, his mother, and his brothers and sisters. As a teenager, he saw little hope. However, he was inspired by the courage and strength of his mother and his close friends. He followed his own path to becoming a successful man. Today, he is a happy and well-adjusted husband, father and businessman.
