Christopher Hayes, Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy’s Head of School, says, “We are so pleased Shaun Tomson will be speaking to our students, school families and the community.”

“Character Education is an integral part of Holy Trinity’s curriculum, and it is our mission to develop strong citizens. Mr. Tomson’s message aligns well with that of the school’s.”

Prior to the evening event, Tomson will be addressing the schools’ fourth through sixth grades and seventh through twelfth grades regarding the importance of making good decisions and anti-bullying. 20,000 young people in the U.S., aged 15 to 24, die every day from preventable accidents caused by poor choices.

Tomson’s goal is to make the students aware of the implications of their decisions.
