A Message from Henderson County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council:

Danya Perry is a dynamic and engaging speaker who gives a tremendous presentation/  Unfortunately, due to unexpected medical complications, we have had to postpone our training.

Danya is revoering from a recent and unplanned open-heart surgery.  While his prognosis is good, his doctors have advised him against travel at his time.  As a result we must postpone this valuable trianing.

Mr. Perry is doing well, and looks forward to meeting you all at the trianing which will be rescheduled for a later date, closer to the beginning of the school year.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and hope that you are able to attend the rescheduled training.

Great news!  Mr. Perry is recovering nicely from his surgery and we have set a new date for our event.  Addressing Gangs: Becoming Insanely Optimistic will take place on Tuesday, September 17, 2013, from 8:30am to 4pm.  The new location will be announced.
