CofC Speaker's subject is one nobody wants to hear about

By Linda Waggener

The guest speaker at the March 14, 2017 Chamber of Commerce Meeting in Cranmer Dining Center at Lindsey Wilson College said, "the crowd may be lighter today because it's hard to listen to details about the painful subject of child sexual abuse."

Chamber of Commerce President Ellen Zornes introduced the speaker as Loretta Burton Coppage, one of her own former Adair County Public School students and someone she knew would be great in this work. The speaker is now the Executive Director and Forensic Interviewer at the Lake Cumberland Children’s Advocacy Center, a non-profit agency dedicated to the mission to prevent further victimization of sexually abused children and minimize the emotional trauma.


She provided information that the most effective prevention happens before a child is harmed. Kids are immediately safer when parents and caregivers take the time to learn about sexual abuse and its warning signs. Parents and caregivers who make a commitment to speak up as soon as they have reason to be concerned, instead of waiting for evidence, make sure children even better protected.

There are dangers from strangers and on the internet, of course, but the greater majority of sexually abused children know their abusers.

Parents and volunteers are asked to become familiar with the warning signs, and to learn about steps that can be taken.

She invited the public to call and stop in at the Center, 427 South Main Street, Jamestown, KY., which serves the ten-county Lake Cumberland region including Adair, Russell, Cumberland, Clinton, Wayne, McCreary, Pulaski, Casey, Taylor and Green Counties. The contact phone number is 270-343-6922 and email address is lccac@duo-county.com.
