On May 5th, Bobbi Sudberry from Kaity's Way had the pleasure of sharing Kaity's Story with the students of Peoria Accelerated High School. 17 of the 20 students completed a survey and the results are:

100% of the students believe they would recognized the warning sings of abuse in a relationship since hearing Kaity's Story.

82% believe they have known or know someone in an abusive relationship

18% believe they are in an abusive relationship

100% believe it would benefit teenagers to have Kaity's Story presented in the school systems and/or with youth organizations

Who would they go to if they found themselves in an abusive relationship?
Parents 53%, 5% Teacher/Coach, 59% Friend, 12% Counselor, 0% Religious leader, 18% Other

88% believe it would be helpful for teenagers if more adults were educated about teen dating violence

100% believe Kaity's Story was appropriate considering the subject matter

88% would share Kaity's Story with someone they believe might be in an abusive relationship.

Kudos to Ms. Lozano for providing these students with the necessary tools to identify an abusive/violent relationship as well as what as help them understand what goes into having a Healthy Relationship.....

There was one question and that was "how old was she?" She was 17 years old....
