All Pro Dad: Celebrating fathers year-round

Fathers play an integral role in their children’s lives, and Sonora Smart Dodd wanted a day to celebrate that. If there was a day dedicated to celebrating mothers, she wanted a day to honor her father William Jackson Smart, a single father of six and a Civil War veteran.
