About

The Legends of Michiana documentary series focuses on the people and organizations that have been influential to the growth and development of the Michiana area. In the newest installment in the series, WNIT will take you inside the life of a couple, Drs. Virginia and Richmond Calvin, whose lives have been synonymous with education in the South Bend region.

Dr. Virginia Calvin served as Superintendent of the South Bend Community School Corporation for 7 years and Chancellor of Ivy Tech Community College – North Central for 10 years. Dr. Richmond Calvin had a 30- year career as a teacher and administrator at IU South Bend. Each have served in numerous board and advisory positions, all aimed at strengthening our community and many focused on improving our educational system.

Calvin stated about education, “We know through research that education is the one link that changes lives. It has a greater impact on how we behave as citizens, an impact on healthcare, and how we take care of ourselves.”

Giving back is not something Virginia & Richmond Calvin simply do……it’s a way of life. When asked why giving back is so important to them, Richmond recalls that a professor who mentored him and Virginia in graduate school told them, “Don’t worry about what I’ve done. I’m glad you thanked me, but now you go out and help someone yourself.”
