Anti-hazing program to be held Monday

Hazing incidents are in the news once again with a case in Lehighton recently.

Dennis Goodwin, a co-founder of the Anti Hazing Collaborative (nohaze.org), will be presenting a program, “Making of Heroes,” on Monday at the Franklin Township Fire Company.

“Making of Heroes” will be presented four times throughout the day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the fire company, 2440 Fairyland Road, Lehighton.

The awareness and training event will be attended by a representative of Safe2Say Something and Carbon County District Attorney Michael Greek, as well as by other county officials.

The program is free to everyone, with each program lasting about two hours. The schedule begins at 10 a.m. followed by additional presentations at noon, 2 and 4 p.m.

A short period of questions and answers will be provided in each session.

“Making of Heroes” is an educational and inspirational program focusing on methods and techniques to end bullying, hazing and abuse.

Local students, parents and community groups are invited to attend.
