The time has come for another exciting conference announcement! The Oregon School Resource Officers Association is delighted to introduce Kristina Anderson as a featured presenter at our 2016 School Safety Conference.
On April 16, 2007, Kristina Anderson went to class at Virginia Tech University with no idea that she would soon be in the midst of a massacre. Shot three times, Kristina was one of the most critically injured students from the tragedy. Kristina survived, returned to Virginia Tech, and graduated with a degree in International Studies and Foreign Languages.
Kristina is the founder and executive director of The Koshka Foundation for Safe Schools, a non-profit dedicated to helping local community and school stakeholders work together to prevent, respond and heal in the aftermath of school violence. Drawing from her own experience as a survivor, she makes herself a resource to school administrators, teachers and students within higher education and K-12 settings regarding violence prevention initiatives and ways to increase individual personal safety awareness.
OSROA is thrilled that Kristina Anderson will be with us this year to talk about best practices, lessons learned, and surviving an active shooting incident from her unique perspective as a survivor. A sought-after and nationally-known speaker, Kristina’s presentation is not to be missed.
OSROA’s School Safety Conference will be July 31-August 3, 2016 at the Salishan Golf and Spa Resort. Additional details, including conference pricing and lodging info, are available at www.osroa.net.
More announcements are on the way… Stay tuned.
