Hazing Prevention Seminar
Wednesday, May 22, 2013 ~ 7:00 - 8:30 PM
In light of recent troubling incidents involving the hazing of students locally and throughout the country, a special anti-hazing/bullying forum will be held to address this important topic. Several noted speakers familiar with the issue of hazing and hazing prevention will speak to all local residents about the problem. This is a one-of-a-kind great way to learn about this issue and what positive steps can be taken to prevent it.
There is no cost to attend and refreshments will be served. Anti-hazing resources will be available free of charge. Panelists participating in the forum include Laura Morask, a Maine Township trustee who is a retired Cook County State's Attorney prosecutor who specialized in gang crime; B. Elliott Hopkins, director of Sports, Sanctioning and Educational Services for the National Federation of State High School Associations; and Tom Delehanty, national marketing representative of Sequel Youth & Family Services, a national agency that helps troubled youths. The forum is being sponsored by Journal & Topics Newspapers.
