Love, Mom & Dad: Turning tragedy into progress

The Anti-Hazing Coalition hosted a live nationwide presentation and discussion to kick off  HazingPrevention.Org’s National Hazing Prevention Week on Sunday, September 20.

If you would like to view the recording, contact Todd Shelton.

As many campuses have moved away from in-person experiences this fall, the AHC wants to ensure students receive hazing prevention education. The AHC parents presented a program streamed live on social media to share their sons’ stories and educate current students about hazing prevention. The program included Q&A with the parents moderated by Hailey Mangrum of Phired Up and member of Delta Sigma Theta.

Parents who participated in the program:

  • Deb Debrick, her son Dalton died after a hazing incident at Texas Tech University
  • Steve and Rae Ann Gruver, their son Max died after a hazing incident at Louisiana State University
  • Lianne Kowiak, her son Harrison died after a hazing incident at Lenoir-Rhyne University
  • Jim and Evelyn Piazza, their son Tim died after a hazing incident at Penn State University
  • Kathleen Wiant, her son Collin died after a hazing incident at Ohio University
