All senior parents of students involved in these activities should arrive at Hancock Stadium no later than 6:30pm. The recognition of our students and their parents will take place just prior to the U-High vs Springfield Lanphier football game.

The forum will be held on October 8. The goal of the forum is to bring greater awareness and attention to behavioral health issues and, more importantly, to showcase strategies and resources that are available.

All student sessions will be held in the Normal Theater and are open to all McLean county students, ages 12 and above. Adult participants will join the youth for three special cross over sessions throughout the day. Adults and teens ages 12-18 can register at https://www.mcleancountyil.gov Walk-ins will also be welcome.
