Tina Meier of the Megan Meier Foundation will be speaking at the Camden County public schools on Oct. 3 and 4, including Camdenton, Climax Springs and Macks Creek Public Schools.
Child Advocacy Council and Camdenton School are creating an opportunity for parents, professionals and the community to hear what Tina Meier has to say on the evening of Oct. 3 at 6:30 p.m. This opportunity will be at the R.C. Worthan Auditorium.  

This year, over 13 million American students will be bullied or cyberbullied. In 2006, Megan Meier was one of those children who was cyberbullied with messages to her that included “The world would be a better place without you,” and “Have a (expletive) rest of your life.”  Megan was just short of her 14th birthday but like so many teens and pre-teens, she was vulnerable and wanted to be popular and liked.  Megan’s response to the cyberbullying was to take her own life.

Tina Meier made it her mission to prevent happening to other kids what happened to Megan. She has traveled throughout the country telling Megan’s story and helping schools and parents address this very difficult subject. Her presentations are well received and her story has been shared in several family magazines.

Child Advocacy Council is pleased to be bringing Tina Meier and the Megan Meier Foundation to local schools. Camdenton R-III will be hosting this event for two days. Macks Creek School will be co-hosting with Climax Springs at the Macks Creek Auditorium.   

A local family therapist and a member of the Child Advocacy Council states:  “We have seen numerous children and teens who have been bullied and cyberbullied. The threat of suicide among our students is very real and the Council wants to work with the schools and with parents/families to prevent bullying, cyberbullying and suicide.”
