Pierce County Record — On Friday, Jan. 8, Alison Feigh ’10, Program Director of the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center, a program of Gundersen National Child Protection Training Center, has been invited to speak to Ellsworth Middle School students on “Protecting Your Online Footprint.”
The students will learn about the importance of making healthy choices online. Online risks and dangers will be discussed so youth are aware of behaviors that should trigger warning flags. Risky behaviors, including sexting and cyberbullying, will also be covered. Sexting will be covered with students in grades 7-8.
Feigh came to the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center initially in 2001 from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. She remained with JWRC until 2009 working with students, parents, law enforcement and the media with the ultimate goal of reducing abductions and abuse of children. She returned to JWRC in 2011, following the completion of her M.S. in Criminal Justice at St. Cloud State University.
