Turning Point Domestic Violence Services held its seventh annual “Men Take a Stand” event to combat domestic and dating violence Thursday evening. That event included the presentation of the “Stand Up Award.” This year’s recipient is Bartholomew Consolidated School Corp. Superintendent Dr. Jim Roberts. He says he was surprised by the award.
Roberts’ award was presented by last year’s Stand Up Award winner, Nick Grams.
About two-dozen people braved the rain and cool temperatures for Thursday evening’s event on Washington Street.
