On August 25 and 26th, all 6th-12th grade Meade County schools held their first assembly in over 2 years. All 6th-12th grade students had the opportunity to be introduced to their new resources officers and hear a powerful message from guest speaker Scott Harvey.
As a police officer of 20 years, Harvey has spent most of his career working in schools and has taught thousands of D.A.R.E classes to police officers and SROs. With this experience and expertise associated with the dangers of social media, online bullying, sexting, and the anxiety caused by technology, Harvey created “IamSomeone: Responsible Use of Technology for students AND parents/teachers”.
The Meade County Chamber of Commerce was excited to partner with the Otter Creek Fraternal Order of Police to sponsor this event. School safety and Student Resource Officers are something that we value in our organization.
This year we were proud to award Officer Tim Childs with our first Career Advancement Scholarship for him to attend DARE school. We hope that this presentation and our SROs support and protect these students now and in the future.
