Commitment In Action
The statistics on the prevalence of child sexual abuse are overwhelming, with one in six boys and one in four girls sexually abused before they reach adulthood. Dr. Mark Mitchell and Dr. Mary Martin of our Educational Leadership program provide Darkness to Light training to educators throughout South Carolina and the region. This Stewards of Children program educates adults on how to prevent child sexual abuse, recognize its symptoms, and act responsibly on suspicions. Since protecting our children is a collective responsibility, all of our education majors have an opportunity to receive this valuable training.
