To educate Williamson County parents on how to recognize the warning signs their child is being bullied or their child might be bullying others, the Patricia Hart Society has scheduled a “Lunch & Learn” with Rodger Dinwiddie, CEO of STARS (Students Taking A Right Stand).

The free seminar is open to anyone in Williamson County and will be held on Friday, Oct. 7th at 12:00 noon until 1 p.m. in the offices of United Way of Williamson County. Bring your own brown bag lunch but reservations are required with seating limited to 50 attendees. Contact Debby Rainey with United Way at 615-771-2312 for a reservation.
