Thelen to Speak on How to Prevent Bullying
By WestKyStar & St. Mary School Staff
PADUCAH, KY - Throughout the day on Wednesday, April 18th, Author Tom Thelen will be speaking to St. Mary School System students on bullying prevention and student leadership. 

A parent and community session with Tom Thelen will be held Wednesday evening, April 18 at 6 at St. Mary High School. All are invited and encouraged to attend.

Thelen is the author of "Victimproof:  The Student’s Guide to End Bullying", a book that shows students how to drop the victim mindset and how to stand up to bullying. He has spoken at over 500 schools and youth conferences and has been featured on PBS, CBS and FOX.

As a youth speaker, Thelen’s message takes students on a journey through his own life story, a normal “face in the crowd” kid who never struggled with drugs or alcohol, but instead lived with a victim mindset. Thankfully, one teacher stepped in and helped him break free from the bullying cycle. Today, Thelen travels America showing students how to stand up to bullying and how to “Be The Change!”

St. Mary extends a special thank you to Home Floors and Kitchen for sponsoring this speaker and curriculum.
