One local middle school is standing tall against bullying, literally.

A former Harlem Globetrotter spoke at Jackson P Burley Middle School about respect. He also gave tips on how kids can achieve their goals through hard work and determination, just like he did.

"I sit in my car everyday before I go into a school, and I say a prayer hoping that I can at least change one kid's life in a positive way and if I've done that, I've completed my mission," said former Globetrotter Tyrone Hollywood Brown who is part of an organization called PROkids.

Brown travels around the county speaking to middle and elementary school students.
