Welcome Keynote Speaker Frank DeAngelis


The Oregon School Resource Officers Association is thrilled to make our first keynote announcement for 2016.

Retired Principal Frank DeAngelis, who served Columbine High School for 35 years, will be presenting at our 2016 School Safety Conference on the Oregon Coast.

The tragedy at Columbine redefined the nation. Frank DeAngelis tells his story from the events to the aftermath. His presentation will reveal the leadership lessons he learned in the focus of an international firestorm. His blunt and straightforward account provides invaluable insights into managing the after-crisis with students, staff members, community members and never ending media attention. A positive attitude and a passion for his job allowed him to work at Columbine from 1979 to 2014. He shares how he was able to build a community that worked together for his kids; the students at Columbine High School. The takeaways from this presentation should be required reading for every leader in the nation.

“Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but how we react to what happens; not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst… a spark that creates extraordinary results.” (anonymous)

OSROA’s School Safety Conference will be July 31-August 3, 2016 at the beautiful Salishan Golf and Spa Resort. Additional conference information, including pricing and hotel details, are available at www.osroa.net.
