The University of Maine student group, Male Athletes Against Violence, was recognized by the U.S. Marshals Service for its work to educate others about violence and its effort to stop it during the group’s first meeting of the semester.
The group received a certificate of appreciation for its work including its new public service announcement, “I Want to Live in a World.”
Noel March, U.S. Marshal for the district of Maine, attended the meeting and spoke to the group of 10 male student-athletes about the importance of men being involved in anti-violence work.
MAAV Student Coordinator Spencer Wood, a graduate student studying human development, and Sandra Caron, professor of family relations/human sexuality and the group’s founder, accepted the certificate on behalf of the group.
