After principal Greg Hudnall was asked to identify the body of student who had taken his life in the public park next to his high school, he made
a commitment to do everything in his power help prevent suicide in his district. Through community partners the Circles4Hope community
suicide prevention model was developed, which led to the school-based peer leadership program Hope Squad. Hope Squads seek to reduce
self-destructive behavior and youth suicide by training, building, and creating change in schools and communities. Members are empowered to
recognize signs of suicide contemplation, and how to properly and respectfully report this to an adult. LEARN MORE
