Staff Training On Sex Trafficking Related to Middle School Students

This morning Awtrey staff received training on recognizing victims of sex trafficking.  This was particularly relevant to our staff because the "average" age of victims is 11-14.  Susan Norris, author of the book Rescuing Hope, conducted the training.  While the story is fictional, all of the events actually took place.  The events were taken from different stories of rescued victims and combined to create the narrative.  Every middle school parent should read this book, if for no other reason than being able to warn students about the traps traffickers use as lures.
