Two speakers presented programs supported by Women United grants. Principal Amy Denney discussed the success of the Mercy Child Advocacy Center’s “Speak Up Be Safe” program for third graders at Perry Creek Elementary School. Associate Director Anna Bertrand from Sky Ranch Behavioral Services shared the story of a young client’s traumatic life experiences who has since graduated from high school and has plans to pursue a college degree.
