Students raise awareness towards child abuse

Posted:
Students in Niles are trying to raise awareness towards the issue of child abuse.  Thursday morning students planted pinwheels in front of the school to represent how big the problem of child abuse is.  

School Counselor Joan Langmeyer says that one out of ten children will be abused before the age of 18.  Langmeyer says the affects of the abuse never go away.

The event was a culmination of National Child Abuse Awareness Month that ended April 30.
