A young mom wanting to get playgrounds in her neighborhood fixed led to a career in political activity and community service. Sheila Brillson Matias, mayor of Michigan City from 1996 to 2003, is back home guiding the Leadership Institute at Purdue University Northwest and the Society of Innovators.
