The students had a table set up with information about teen depression and suicide prevention.

Suicide Prevention Education Awareness Kit (SPEAK) information was available for students to read and the club passed out ribbons to raise awareness of teen depression and suicide.

The True Beauty Club, with more than 120 members, is in its second year and was formed to recognize an individual’s true beauty rather than focus on looks and superficial beauty.

Tanya Van Ornum and Michael Stevens are co-advisers of the group in grades six to twelve.

Also handing out ribbons to raise awareness of teen depression and suicide were: Jessica Leppien, Lindsey Goodnough, Richelle Ranieri, Courtney Plumley, Tanya Van Ornum, Caitlyn Williams, Bailey Laudre and Wayne Sponable.
