POTEAU–In an effort to heighten awareness with regards to bullying, the LeFlore County Coalition for Healthy Living and its partners invite you to attend a public presentation on bullying.
The presentation will be tonight at 7 at the Hamilton Auditorium at Carl Albert State College.
Kirk Smalley will be the guest speaker. In May of 2009, after “standing up to his tormentor”, Kirk’s son Ty was suspended from school for fighting. It was more than the 11-year-old could stand and that day he took one last tragic step.
Since that day, Smalley has made it his mission to “stand for the silent”.
He has addressed thousands of students and professionals in an effort to heighten awareness and prevent further tragedy and grief. Smalley speaks from the heart and offers one of the most heart-wrenching and moving programs you will ever witness.
For more information call Bill Slater at 918-635-5477 or visit Smalley’s website at www.standforthesilent.com.
