Catherine Shellman will host a screening of "Not Enough Time," a film on dating violence, at Texas State University Thursday, Feb. 26.

The event will be held at 6 p.m. in the LBJ Student Center Teaching Theater on campus. It is free and open to the public.

Shellman narrates her firsthand experience with dating violence through the eyes of a mother. Ti­ffanie Perry, Shellman's daughter, was in her final semester working on a business management degree at Texas State in September 2010 and had everything going for her--including the ability to finally leave her abuser once and for all. She was graduating from college and had bought a one way ticket to Italy… all she needed was a litt­le bit more time. Perry was killed by her ex-boyfriend who then killed himself.               

A panel discussion and question and answer session will immediately follow the film screening. Panelists will include Shellman; Melissa Rodriquez, director of community partnerships at the Hays-Caldwell Women’s Center; Curtis Clay, associate director of the Texas School Safety Center; and Xavier Reveles, president of Men Against Violence at Texas State.

Event management will be available for students who would like extra credit or list the event on their iCAT. This event is sponsored by Health Promotion Services, Student Health Center, Men Against Violence, Bobcats Leaving Out Violence, Hays-Caldwell Women’s Center and the Counseling Center.
