National anti-bullying speaker set for this fall
Daily News

The Palestine Police Department has announced it's co-sponsoring a program on bullying and youth violence in the fall.

Chief Jeff Besing received confirmation Friday that the United Way of Knox County (Crawford County chapter) is going to co-sponsor, along with the police department, a "True Lies--Teen Violence & Bullying" program Oct. 16 at Lincoln Trail College.

The presenter will be Phil Chalmers, a nationally known expert speaker on teen violence and bullying. He has spent 20 years speaking and interviewing teens and young adults who have committed school shootings, serial killings and other violent acts. He also speaks about peer pressure as well as teens use of drug and alcohol.

Chalmers will also cover topics such as self-image, body image, how to treat men and women in their school, suicide, self-abuse, bullying and crime prevention.

This 60-minute presentation has been known to keep students engaged, humor them and actually begin change in their lives and thinking.

"I take very seriously the 60 minutes that the schools give me and I fully expect to see life change in the students from the short time I get to spend with them," Chalmers said.

Recent incidents have left many in the country scrambling for answers on motives and how to prevent these horrific events from happening. Chalmers' experience in interviewing these perpetrators may help provide some answers.

The presentation will be at the Lincoln Trail College Natatorium.

"I would like to express my appreciation to the United Way foundation, Lincoln Trail College and a private donor for helping bring this program to our students," Besing said.
