AKRON — The Tippecanoe Valley Community Mental Health Task Force and Crosswinds is hosting an event designed to alert parents and guardians about the dangers of teens using technology.
“Protecting Your Family from the Dangerous Side of Technology” is a presentation that will be held in the Tippecanoe Valley High School Lecture Room tonight, March 27.
The presenter will be Crista Miller, who will be joined by Detective Jeffrey Robertson, an FBI special agent, and Chris McCarthy from the Fort Wayne Police Department’s Human Trafficking Task Force.
Miller will share her story about the heartbreaking experiences of her family that resulted from her daughter’s use of technology. People interested in attending are encouraged to go to YouTube and search for “My Story – Crista” to understand more about her experience.
“The bad guys are out there and are ready to prey on our children. By increasing our awareness of the dangerous side of technology, we can help families avoid the pain experienced by Crista and her family,” said Superintendent Brett Boggs.
Students 13 years of age and older are encouraged to accompany their parent/guardian. The general public is also invited. A meal of pizza, chips, cookies and water will be served in the TVHS cafeteria starting at 6:15 p.m., followed by the presentation in the lecture room from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
