Guest speaker discusses sensitive subject

On Wednesday, March 16, Detective Casey Tegethoff of the Mitchell Police Department visited the students in grades six through 12 at Sanborn Central to inform them about dangerous activity on social media. He discussed a number of subjects from keeping yourself safe, to online bullying, to becoming a target of online predators. 

He talked about risky behaviors of kids on different types of social media. He said that things that are posted on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter could be things that some kids think are funny, but eight years from now, they won’t be so funny when they are trying to get a job. He showed the kids a video about a young man who was planning to go to college on a swim scholarship and then made the big mistake of posting pictures of him and his friends partying, and those pictures cost him his scholarship and got him suspended from his high-school team.
