Ryan’s Story Presentation at RMS

On Monday, February 12, 2024, speaker and author John Halligan gave a presentation to Roslyn Middle School students to educate them about bullying, cyberbullying, and teen suicide prevention.

Mr. Halligan’s son, Ryan, took his own life in 2003 after experiencing bullying by his peers, and he had made it his mission to use his story to provoke thought and inspire positive change in student behavior. 

His ‘Ryan’s Story’ presentation began with a short video collection of home movie clips and pictures of Ryan. He told the story of Ryan’s life and explained the factors that led up to his suicide. He also encouraged any students who are experiencing bullying or having thoughts of suicide to seek help.
