Youth Violence Topic Draws Pair to Testify in L.A

Youth Violence Topic Draws Pair to Testify in L.A


Byline: MATT COOPER The Register-Guard

A principal and a grant writer from the Eugene-Springfield educational community will travel to Los Angeles next month to testify at a forum on youth violence organized by the U.S. surgeon general.

Sheryl Ott, administrator and principal of the TurnAround School Program in Eugene, and Brooke Marshall, a grant writer with the Springfield School District, will attend "Youth Violence and Public Health: A Community Forum" on Dec. 11.

The forum is one in a series organized by Surgeon General David Satcher to generate response to his report on the diverse problems that lead to youth violence, "Youth Violence: A Report of the Surgeon General," released in January.

"We need to hear from community groups, parents and young people themselves about the problem of youth violence in their communities," Satcher said. "It is vitally important that people either come to the community forum or send comments to us by e-mail."

Ott and Marshall will talk about the federal Safe Schools Healthy Students grant, which earmarked $8 million for programs to deter school violence in the Eugene, Springfield and Bethel school districts through the 2002-2003 school year.

The grant program came in response to a series of school shootings, including the 1998 Thurston High School attack in Springfield that left two students dead and 25 wounded.

One of the projects the grant funded is Eugene's TurnAround School, where at-risk students learn social and behavioral skills. Students are admitted after a referral from the school in their area.
