Bear-y Nice! MSAT Second Year Student: Katelyn Ward

November 21st, 2017: Second year student in the MSAT program, Katelyn Ward, is really showing the community what it means to be caring and thankful this Holiday season. A huge thank you to Katelyn and everyone involved for your generosity and kindness. Do something bigger altogether. #DSBA

“Katelyn coordinated with the community and local businesses to help the Greensboro Police Department raise enough money to purchase 1,188 teddy bears to donate to GPD’s Ted E. Bear program. Katelyn, along with Guilford College Men’s Lacrosse and players from the Page High School Football team dropped off 1,188 Teddy bears.”

“The Ted E. Bear program allows officers from the Greensboro Police Department (GPD) to carry a few bears with them and offer them to children at crime scenes, accidents, domestic violence calls, child abuse/neglect calls and other incidents. The bears are a great comfort to small victims/sufferers, and serve as allies for officers. They instill trust in uncomfortable or unfamiliar surroundings.” Read more on the program, and how you can get involved here:
