Break the Silence of Teen Bullying and Suicide

Monday, November 19th    6:00–8:30 pm

Frederick High School, Auditorium


FREDERICK, MD – Please join the Frederick Police Department, Frederick County Public Schools, Frederick County PTA Council, and Clergy in Service for a special event titled:  Break the Silence of Teen Bullying and Suicide.  This presentation will be held on Monday, November 19th from 7:00 – 8:30 pm at Frederick High School in the Auditorium. 


Doors open at 6:00 pm and there will be community organizations and youth resources available to talk to prior to the start of the event.  


Beginning at 7:00 pm, Mr. Kirk Smalley, from Stand For The Silent will take the stage and share the story of losing his son to suicide.  Stand For The Silent was started in 2010 by a group of high school students in Oklahoma City, OK, after they heard the story of Kirk and Laura Smalley’s son, Ty Field Smalley. At 11 years old, Ty took his own life after being suspended from school for retaliating against a bully that had been bullying him for over two years. Kirk and Laura’s mission is to continue to change kids’ lives and bring awareness to bullying and the real devastation it causes. Since May 2010, Kirk and Laura Smalley have traveled to over 1,275 schools and spoken with over 1.3 million kids! 


The Stand For The Silent (SFTS) program addresses the issue of school bullying with an engaging, factual, and emotional methodology. With the help of student leaders, Kirk Smalley presents his inspirational story, and students are shown firsthand the life and death consequences of bullying.
