High school students face all sorts of pressures

Because gang violence and organized crime affects everyone.

Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary School’s Parent Advisory Council is inviting parents to a presentation titled “End Gang Life” on Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. in the theatre at the school, 6151 180 St.

We are extending this invitation to Cloverdale-area parents from our feeder elementary schools as well as parents of Lord Tweedsmuir and Clayton Heights secondary school students.

Why? Because gang violence and organized crime affects everyone.

Our students face all sorts of pressures. This presentation will help parents understand and recognize some of those pressures. It can help to stimulate conversation about gangs as well as demystify and eliminate misconceptions.

The hour-long presentation will begin with Const. Jordan McLellan, an experienced gang investigator and gang enforcement officer explaining the myths and realities of the gang lifestyle and how the perceived lifestyles of these people are not what actually ends up happening.

Then, former gang member Jordan Buna will share his life story and how the choices he made severely impacted his life in a negative way.

There will be time for questions afterwards.

If you are unable to make it to the presentation, please visit the End Gang Life website: http://bit.ly/1WY91Wt
