Faculty and Students Recognizes Child Abuse Prevention Month with Pinwheels for Prevention® at Brunswick Community College

Bolivia, N.C. (April 2, 2019) – College students in the Social Problems course will be planting Pinwheels for Prevention® at Brunswick Community College on Wednesday, April 3rd to recognize Child Abuse Prevention Month. Every April, Pinwheels for Prevention® are planted across Brunswick County and North Carolina to encourage the public to learn more about the importance of making connections that matter to build healthy brain development which creates better health outcomes for families and children as they grow up and positive outcomes for us all.

At Brunswick Community College and with our college students, we know that we can make a positive impact on the future by building connections that matter to children, parents and adults,” said Justin Ovaska, Sociology Instructor , member of Prevent Child Abuse-North Carolina and board member for North Carolina chapter of the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children. “We know that caring relationships can actually help prevent and even mitigate the effects of trauma.”

Tomorrow’s event at Brunswick Community College is part of the nationwide Pinwheels for Prevention® campaign of Child Abuse Prevention Month since 2008. Pinwheels are the symbol of child abuse prevention and a visible reminder of the happy and healthy childhood that all children deserve.
