Tina Nelson is a 2010 graduate of Cook County High School. She was very active in CCHS sports, in volleyball and basketball. She has gone on to be the head volleyball coach and assistant basketball coach at Marshall School in Duluth. But that is a part time job – she also works full time as a public health educator. She is now the Northeast Minnesota suicide prevention coordinator.  

She travels around the state speaking at area schools, sharing the suicide prevention message and resources that are available, such as the Minnesota Crisis Text Line. She tells students that the text line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For help, whether it is for yourself or a friend, help is available by texting MN to 741741.

More information is available online.

Tina will be visiting Cook County Schools on February 22.
