Generals Basketball Takes A Stand Against Domestic Violence

(Sheridan, WY) On a rainy, cold October day the Sheridan College Men’s Basketball Team joined hundreds of other supporters as they participated in the Fourth Annual March Against Family Violence in downtown Sheridan. Joined by local supporters, as well as Sheridan College’s Criminal Justice Program, the march is organized by the Advocacy and Resource Center in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

“It was great to see so many people in the community get together and do something productive against domestic violent”, said General freshman RJ Leverette. “Domestic violence is a problem in our society that many people talk about, it is inspiring to see so the community turn that talk into action and do something to raise awareness of the issue.”

Generals Assistant Coach Aaron Mines organized the men’s team participation in the event and had this to say. “With all that the community does to support the Sheridan Men’s Basketball Team, this is just a small gesture that we can do to return the support. Our guys recognize and appreciate the community outreach with our program and we are happy to reciprocate that same support.”
