Jean Davidson recently spoke to students at Maysville Elementary about “Yell and Tell”. The program teaches children how to  take action in dangerous situations. Finks Harley Davidson sponsored the event.

 
On Thursday, May 17th, students at Maysville Elementary were treated to a special guest! Jean Davidson of the program Yell and Tell came to speak to students in grades K-2.

The Yell and Tell program has been developed by Jean Davidson. She is the granddaughter of Walter Davidson, one of the four founders and the first president of Harley-Davidson. Her father, Gordon Davidson, was Vice President of Manufacturing. Jean chose not to work at the family company but to dedicate her life to teaching children. She has developed educational curriculum for all levels of teaching at both the state and local levels. Jean has written four books featuring personal stories of the Harley and the Davidson families. Her travels take her both nationally and internationally to such events as educational conferences, motorcycle events, and crime prevention conventions.

Recently Jean’s 4 year old grandson, Ryder, died in an accident that could have been prevented if the child standing nearby would have known how to react. Because of this and learning of similar losses, Jean has developed a program called “Yell and Tell."

The Davidson Yell and Tell Foundation, Inc. is a 501c(3)* charitable foundation set up to teach young children what to do when they observe a dangerous situation. Many times this child will run away or be quiet because he/she doesn’t want to get into trouble or be called a tattletale. Sometimes the child is so afraid, he/she is too scared to do anything. The Yell and Tell program teaches children how to take action and be a hero. Some of the most dangerous situations that this program will cover are: POOLS, RIVERS/LAKES, FIRE, POISION, GUNS, CHILD ENTICEMENT AND BULLYING.
Thanks to Fink's Harley Davidson for sponsoring the event!
