THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Thousands of teenaged girls get lessons on life, self-esteem, and bullying today in Thomas County.

The Shaw Center For Women's Health hosted their third annual self-esteem seminar for every Thomasville and Thomas County middle and high school girl.

Organizers hope the presentation helps girls think for themselves and take care of their health.

"We recognize at the Shaw Center that the emotional health of our community is vital to the health of these young girls. We want them to be empowered, confident, young women and so we brought a speaker in from Atlanta to educate them." 

Girl Talk founder Haley Kilpatrick was the guest speaker.

The Thomas County presentation took place at Central High School. The Macintyre Park Middle School played host to the city event.
