The Southern Humboldt Unified School District recently had Michael Pritchard come and talk to students. He shared information with them on bullying and the effects it has. He is a powerful speaker, and is able to connect with students on their level.
The district would like to thank the Rotary of Garberville, Soroptimist International of the Redwoods, Credit Union of Southern Humboldt, Specialty Woodworks, Redway PTSA, as well the many personal donations from community members. They would also like to thank Miranda Gardens Resort and the Avenue Café for helping to make his stay that much more enjoyable.
Without the help and support of our generous community this would not have been possible. The district is extremely grateful that the students were able to have this wonderful opportunity, and to take from it lessons that they can carry with them for life.
Catherine Scott is the Southern Humboldt Unified School District superintendent.
