2013 Golf Outing: A Huge Success!!

Solid Blend Technologies

Thank you, Solid Blend Technologies!

We had a wonderful day of golfing and raised lots of money for KIND on June 10, 2014. Our gratitude goes out to all of our supporters and golfers for making it such a success. We especially want to thank our event sponsor, Solid Blend Technologies! We couldn’t have done it without you. You helped changed children’s lives out on that golf course, one stroke at a time, and we are forever grateful.

Harley Rinehart, Winner of Violence Prevention Essay Contest, with Dayton Prosecuting Attorney Matt Heck

Awards Ceremony was held on Wednesday, May 16, 2012.

The Kids In New Directions program is proud to have a winner within the top 10 for The 22nd Annual Violence Prevention (VPP). Harley Rinehart was recognized on May 16, 2012 for her essay “Don’t Be a Bully.” Dayton’s Prosecuting Attorney Mathias H. Heck, Jr. presented the awards at the Masonic Temple of Dayton. This year, the VPP received more than 2000 entries from students representing 26 schools in Montgomery County. During the ceremony they acknowledged the top winners.

The Violence Prevention Project began in 1990 to offer information about alternatives to violence as a means to solving problems. The close connection between violence and the use of illegal drugs soon led to a discussion about alternatives to drugs as well as violent behavior and bullying. And, with the increased access to electronic technology it was necessary to include the subject of internet safety. The education programs and this contest have been used to encourage members of our community, particularly our youth, to promote positive behavior.

The posters and essays they received during this year’s contest prove that the youth are aware of the problems that exist and have messages to share. Hopefully, these messages will promote others to consider peaceful resolutions to problems.

Congratulations, Harley Rinehart, for a job well done!
