Taggart to ‘sound alarm’ at Capitol

Andy Taggart today will share with lawmakers and education officials his pain over the loss of his son and says he hopes it “sounds an alarm.”

Taggart will address a joint meeting of the House and Senate Universities and Colleges committees, and talk about his son, Brad, who took his life at 21 last July.

Taggart said the state College Board has asked him to address several groups, including the legislative committees.

He said he is not advocating a policy or services, but just providing a warning.
