THIS YEAR’S SPEAKER
Michelle Chambers made history in January 2020 by becoming one of the first two African American women elected to the Fort Wayne City Council. However, 2020 also brought significant challenges for Councilwoman Chambers. First the pandemic and then her diagnosis with stage II breast cancer.
During her cancer treatment, Michelle only missed one council meeting and maintained a rigorous schedule as leader of the Mayor’s Commission on Policing Reform and Racial Justice, a business owner, teacher, and wife.
Michelle holds a master’s degree in Public Administration and a bachelor’s degree in Child Development. She owns Signing Closers LLC, is an adjunct professor at Vincennes University, and a fulltime business teacher at East Allen County University. She has the distinction of being a National Urban Fellow and a Rotary International Paul Harris Fellow.
She is also the beloved wife of Dr. Benny Fair Jr., DPM.
