BUILDING A RESPONSIBLE, BULLY-FREE COMMUNITY
Join us for an examination into how civil understanding, respect and behavior can have a positive impact in helping to eradicate bullying. Through our partnerships with the Howard County Public School System and Howard Community College, we will engage the ideas and thoughts of students, their parents, and the Howard County community.
The symposium will be moderated by noted NPR journalist Korva Coleman, engaging experts with perspectives from academia, psychology and behavioral science. Featured panelist Courtney Macavinta is President of The Respect Institute and coauthor of the best-seller RESPECT. She has reached millions of youth and families with The Respect Basics to help them break cycles of disrespect and thrive and has been featured by CNN, NPR, USA Today, and other national media. Additional panelists include Hammond High School Principal Marcy Leonard and psychologist and bestselling author Dr. Brad Sachs.
Event registration and book sales begin at 6:30 pm. TICKETS ALSO AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR.
