The Student Government Association at Mesalands Community College will be hosting a Situation Awareness and Self-Defense Presentation on Tuesday, January 31, 2017 at 5:15 pm in the North American Wind Research and Training Center lecture hall. This special presentation will be instructed by Abel Cullum of the Tucumcari Police Department and Phil Tafone, Health and Wellness Facility Coordinator/Instructor at Mesalands. This presentation is open to the community and there is no fee to attend.

“The presentation will run approximately 40 minutes,” Tafone said. “I will speak briefly about some awareness information about assault and dating statistics. I will also provide some defensive tactics that can be used to prevent certain situations. Abel (Cullum) will then depict a few physical encounters, with me acting as the aggressor.”
