In an instant 18 year old Leigh Belyn was taken from her family in a tragic gun-related incident. She just graduated from New Albany HighSchool and planned to study nursing at The Ohio State University. Instead of harboring feelings of anger and frustration; Leigh’s family took a big step with hopes of ending teen dating violence everywhere.
The Leigh LaCour Belyn Memorial Fund is known as S.A.V.E. (Strategies Against Violence Everywhere).
Leigh’s father, Terry Belyn, has been a long-time member of the Columbus music scene as a drummer and percussionist with The Ark Band. In a statement released, the Belyn Family expressed thanks “to the entire community for the expressions of sympathy and condolences.” If you can’t give at this time; at least sit down and talk about the dangers of teen dating violence and violence overall with your teen.
