Behind the Words
I am very proud of the many organizations working diligently every day to better our community. Today, members of the I'm Invisible Bullying & Suicide non-profit organization sat down with me to not only discuss their bullying and suicide prevention organization, but to also talk about ways we can implement proven counteractive strategies within our City, that effectively combat this epidemic that is increasingly claiming the lives of so many.

Today we finished our Anti-Bullying program with 6th grade—7th and 8th graders participated in their Anti-Bullying program last Friday. Please continue to talk with your student about being a “buddy and not a bully.” Special thanks to Sharon Edwards and Julia Boyd for organizing this event.

“Thank you, Sharon, for shedding light onto the darkness of bullying. Having taught for twenty years, I have observed bullying evolve into the horrible beast that it is. At one time, students could find peace out of school from their bullies. But, now with technology, they can’t escape it. The consequences have escalated to the fullest. Hopefully, your book will educate people on the importance of identifying and stopping bullying” Rebecca Edwards, M. Ed, English Teacher at Rossview Middle School, Clarksville-Montgomery County School System
We are so thankful for you all coming to our school!!! Our students loved it and they still talking about it. We thought it went great especially sharing your own personal experiences and testimonies, the music really reaches our children and made your presentation extremely relatable to our students. We loved how you involved our students in sharing about their experiences that related to the bullying topic. Thank you so much for allowing our children to have the opportunity to learn and grow from your program.
