Today, in Meridian, Carver Middle School students had an interactive assembly called the “Say Something Assembly”, educating students on sensitive topics.
The mission of the “Say Something Assemblies” is that every student should know how to recognize and respond to issues that threaten their futures.
The topic they are focusing on with Meridian middle schools and high school, is human trafficking.
The interactive presentation shares stories of experience with the students.
“They are relating to the emotions of the story, a lot of them are going through different—I haven’t heard the same story twice, and I don’t think I ever will, because everybody struggles. They’re all different and these kids need somebody that they can trust to lean on and open up, their shoving this stuff down and suppressing their emotions and not feeling”, said Leah Daughdrill, presenter for the assembly.
The middle schools and high school in the Meridian Public-School District are hosting "Say Something Assemblies" throughout the entire week.
