“The impact of mass tragedy ripples through communities for years. The Resiliency Center will be a cornerstone in the recovery process for all. But a collection of resilient individuals does not equal a resilient community. Rather, it’s a resilient community that is best able to care for its individual members.”
– Kevin Becker, PsyD

“When I was asked about the Coordinator position at the Marshall County Resiliency Center, something in my heart stirred. I knew I could be empathetic for families that have lost their children to this type of trauma, because I am walking that path today. I knew I wanted to be a part of this movement at the MHDCC. Until now, I just wasn’t sure how. I knew I had never been more driven, encouraged or determined to help, and that’s what I remain.
I’m humbled and hopeful for my future and the future of our community as I step into the shoes of being the Coordinator for this new Resiliency Center.”
– Jayna Burkey
Resiliency Center Coordinator
“As a district, we have seen the need for mental health and other support services increase over the past two years for students and their families. The Resiliency Center will provide another access point for services for our families outside of the school environment and the school calendar. This added access point will provide another layer of services that will help our community recover.”
– Scott Terry
Recovery Coordinator of Marshall County Schools
