Through Our Hearts group builds community
Fourteen gathered Tuesday morning at 7 a.m. to share ideas and efforts around serving those in need. Kennesaw Police Chief Bill Westenberger welcomed those at the monthly breakfast at First Watch in Kennesaw and Shelley Elder began with the introductions of her visitors, Celine Esmeir, Susan Parker and Ellen Kennerly.
Westenberger shared that a new steering group including stakeholders from Kennesaw and Acworth has been formed to discuss and address the rising incidence of violence in area schools. Mentoring programs and the notion that coordination among those programs should be pursued further was also discussed.
The group will meet again on Tuesday, July 11, (a week later than usual due to the July 4 holiday) at First Watch.
