We are honored and grateful to report that VTVT had one of the most interactive and successful QPR Gatekeeper training ever thanks to our Host Theresa Botts from Spartan Alliance on Saturday February 2, 2019 at the Powell Community Center.
Veterans from the Powell community, Rolling Thunder Chapter 3, the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association and special surprised guest David and Susan Toombs. Susan and David are the surviving parents of Army Veteran John Toombs who committed suicide in November 2016.
We received a thank you email from Theresa on Monday February 4th “I can not explain how grateful I am for the opportunity to have taken the Gatekeepers class. If nothing else comes out of having hosted this class. One individual who is suicidal was reached and can now get the help they need. For that, I thank you. Each one, Reach one, Teach one. Thank you for all you do.”
We also received a Facebook note form Mr. Susan Toombs which read ” Susan Toombs Thank you for having us! Very informative & real. Ed is an awesome instructor. Was so nice to meet you & Scott today…really good day! “ David Toombs also endorsed VTVT’s program and sent this message “I just wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was meeting you this weekend. I’m impressed with the QPR class and training … it was an honor, and a pleasure. Keep up the fine work.” David Toombs
Six (6) attendees accepted VTVT’s QPR Suicide Prevention Instructor Scholarships and will be attending the March 2019 class.
