On October 4, State Representative Bryan Spencer and Wentzville Mayor Nick Guccione will host an event aimed at increasing awareness of the prevalence and impact of bullying on all children of all ages.
The event, which starts at 6 p.m. at the Wentzville Law Enforcement Center, will be headlined by Teens of America founder and president Sean Mulroney. Mulroney tours schools as a motivational speaker, educating students about the importance of staying healthy, and the perils of addiction. He is the leading advocate for teenage empowerment and anti-bullying, and has spoken to more than 150,000 students.
“Sean has a presentation that is moving and personal that all young people and their parents should hear,” said Spencer, R-Wentzville. “This is a great opportunity to come together as a community to learn about the things we can do to support our young people and ensure their school years are free from the kind of bullying that can have long-term repercussions.”
Those who attend the event will also hear from Wentzville Chief of Police Kurt Frisz and a representative from the Wentzville School District.
