Speaker at ASU to Address Sexual Assault Prevention
Curtis Clay, program director for the Texas School Safety Center at Texas State University in San Marcos, will discuss sexual assault awareness and prevention during a program Monday, Sept. 14, at Angelo State University.
The 7 p.m. program is open free to the public and will be held in the Houston Harte University Center’s C.J. Davidson Conference Center, 1910 Rosemont Drive. Clay’s talk will focus on sexual assault and date rape, providing awareness and a call to action for people to think about what they can do to make a difference.
“I know that one out of five college-age females will be assaulted or face an attempted assault during their college years,” Clay said. “We have to look at that very heavily.”
Clay, who graduated from Sul Ross State University in Alpine, began his career as an educator in public schools teaching speech, health and drama. He served nearly three years as a sexual assault prevention educator with the Hays Caldwell Women’s Center in San Marcos before assuming his current post in 1999.
