Along our journey to honor and pay tribute to Demi, by sharing her message to educated others about teen dating violence, we have had the opportunity to meet some extraordinary people. Jackie Dierickx, Educational Outreach Supervisor of Crisis Shelter of Lawrence County is one of those people. Jackie has worked diligently to see that our TDV Awareness and Prevention Program reach every school in Lawrence County. We can’t thank her enough for her efforts.
We were greeted with a warm welcome upon arrival by Principal Michael Ross and several student volunteers. We extend a heartfelt thank you to all the students and faculty members who offered their assistance with the distribution of materials following the presentation. In addition, we were honored to have members of the Crisis Shelter of Lawrence County attend the assembly.
Ladies Hospital Aid Society (LHAS) created the slogan xoshove≠trulove (kiss, hug, shove does not equal true love) which is displayed on t-shirts that were distributed to every student in attendance. Thank you LHAS for recognizing the need to educate teens and communities about the dangers of TDV. We are grateful for your continued support.
