Beth Twitty to discuss spring break safety with Wake Forest students


February 6, 2007

Beth Twitty, the mother of Natalee Holloway, will speak to Wake Forest students about spring break safety at 7 p.m. Feb. 28 in Pugh Auditorium.  The event is free and open to the public.

Holloway disappeared in May 2005 while on a senior graduation trip to Aruba.  Her disappearance generated a six-month national media sensation.  Holloway remains officially missing to this day, although Aruban authorities believe she is dead. 

Twitty is a special needs teacher who is committed to sharing her daughter’s story and educating high school and college students on personal safety.  She has vowed never to give up searching for her daughter or quit seeking justice for her.

In response to her daughter’s disappearance, Twitty established the International Safe Travels Foundation to educate and inform the public about safe international travel.  Her nationwide safety campaign, SAFE TRAVELS, is endorsed by the National Sheriffs’ Association and the National Association of School Resource Officers.

The lecture is sponsored by the Wake Forest Student Union.  For more information, call (336) 758-5697.
