Harvey speaks to a group of students at Marion County Knight Academy in January.
Motivational speaker Scott Harvey will be at Marion County Knight Academy for Parent Night, March 6 at 6 pm to speak to parents about Internet and social media safety. Harvey visited Marion County Knight Academy and Marion County Middle School in January to speak to students on the same topic.
Harvey’s appearances have been organized by Family Resource and Youth Service Center Director Erin Summers.
“I think it is extremely important that we educate our youth on how to use social media in a positive way and inform them of the potential issues that could follow them even into their adult lives if used inappropriately,” Summers said.
According to his website, Harvey has been speaking to groups for over a decade and uses his experiences in law enforcement and teaching the D.A.R.E. program to reach his audience.
