Shelia Ferrell, First Vice President and Managerial Lender, worked on a Leadership Wilson team to develop a Public Service Announcement (PSA) for local students. The PSA specifically promotes the Crisis Text Line, a free 24/7 service that connects texters to trained and compassionate crisis counselors.
This PSA will launch at the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year on media monitors in every middle school and high school in Wilson County. The team is also working on introducing the PSA into local movie theaters and professional service providers in order to reach as many Wilson County students as possible. Their goal is to have the PSA on all local channels by the end of 2018.
