The Polish Father of the Year is honored at the Ethnic Heritage Museum.
The award is given to fathers with various cultural backgrounds for their involvement in the community. This award was given to Slawomir Krysztopa, a Rockford School District employee and dual citizen of the United States and Poland.
"I know some of the fathers who have received this honor and I understand how they have received it. I've seen their work and their involvement and the various things they do. It's kind of humbling that I would be considered as part of that," said Krysztopa.
Krysztopa dedicates much of his success to his local parish.
