Upper school students learn about consent, respect

Ransom Everglades' upper school student body participated in an interactive program designed to reduce sexual assault and increase respect in relationships. Speaker and author Mike Domitrz of The Center for Respect addressed sexual consent, boundaries, substance use and bystander intervention during his Nov. 8 presentation, an important component of Ransom Everglades' health and wellness curriculum. Domitrz also met that evening at the Posner Lecture Hall with RE parents to share guidance.
