In recognition of her faithfulness, dedication, and commitment to victims of crime, Victim Assistance Program recently awarded Pamela Hinton the 2018 Rev. Dr. Robert Denton Outstanding Victim Service Award. A retired Assistant Principal from Barberton, and a victim of school violence, Pam is a passionate advocate for victims’ rights. She founded F.I.V.E.S. (Facing Incidents of Violence against Educators & Staff) a coalition of educators and school staff who strive to increase awareness, create solutions, and make a positive difference in addressing student aggression towards educators. Her efforts led to Senate Bill 133, legislation now requiring the Department of Education to report incidents of student violence that result in disciplinary action, including information about the individuals whom the violence was committed against.
