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.
