Ryan's Story Presentations

Mr. Halligan will relay his own tragic experience as a Dad whose 13-year-old son took his own life in 2003, after bullying by peers since the 5th grade, both in school and online. Mr. Halligan further shares that Ryan wrestled with underlying mental health issues and depression and that these factors contributed to Ryan’s vulnerability and ultimate suicide. His story is riveting and compelling and reminds students that there is a face, a person, a heart, on the other end of the screen. A parent presentation will also take place on the evening of October 6, 2021 in the high school auditorium from 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM. I encourage you to visit a website named for his son: www.RyansStory.org for more information.
