Ginger Katz, CEO and Founder of The Courage to Speak® Foundation gave her presentation to an audience of 500 including coaches, parents, and student-athletes at Bunnell High School on September 10th, 2012. That day marked the 16th anniversary of her son Ian’s death to a drug overdose and was also her first presentation of the new school year. Brian Frazier, Coordinator of Fine Arts, Health and Physical Education, wrote to Ginger and Larry Katz, Co-Founder and her husband, about how moved he was by her presentation. Below is his testimonial.
Ginger and Larry-
I want to thank you for coming to Bunnell High School last night to speak with our parents and students. Your presentation was most important and helped me to gain a different perspective about the impact we have on students and their families.
I found myself quite involved in the presentation and I have not stopped thinking about it since I left Bunnell High School last night. Your story was very moving and I think it had a very serious impact on everyone who was in attendance.
Thank you so much for your courage and honesty to speak to the Bunnell High School community about the serious nature of substance abuse and the impact it had on your lives. I am certain that the students will remember this presentation long after they leave Bunnell High School.
