Michele Gay, whose daughter was among the 20 children killed in the tragic 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., will be the featured speaker at a town hall meeting on safe schools sponsored by Anne Arundel County Public Schools next week.
As an outgrowth of the Sandy Hook tragedy, Gay and Alissa Parker, whose child also died in the shooting, co-founded the group Safe and Sound Schools a national resource for school safety. The former elementary school teacher travels across the country speaking to various groups and conducting school safety workshops and seminars.
A panel discussion that will include Superintendent George Arlotto, representatives of the County Executive’s Office and the county Police Department, and other school system personnel will follow Gay’s remarks.
The event will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 16, 2019, at Magothy River Middle School, located at 241 Peninsula Farm Road in Arnold. It is free but seating is limited and those wishing to attend must register prior to the event here.
Note: No recording (audio or video) of any part of Gay’s presentation will be permitted.
