Town Hall Meeting Tomorrow Night


Students in Ridge View High School's Scholars Academy for Business and Law Magnet program have taken the lead to help prevent teen dating violence. They are hosting a town hall meeting on relationship violence with State Representative Mia McLeod (Richland). State Representative Many Norrell (Lancaster) will also be in attendance. The event will be held on Thursday, April 21st from 6-8 pm in the Ridge View Auditorium, located at 4801 Hard Scrabble Road.

The Scholars Academy students have been in the news lately for their advocacy of "Sierra's Law," which would allow people under the age of 18 to get an order of protection against an abusive partner. The town hall will provide the unique opportunity to discuss what South Carolina can do to end cycles of abuse in our communities and focus on ways we can all be partners in ending violence and ensuring safety for loved ones. WIS-TV weekend anchor Meaghan Norman will moderate the event. The public is invited and welcome to attend. Form more information, please contact Nicole Walker at nwalker@richland2.org.
