Students Participate in Anti-Bullying Campaign

Oct. 10, 2013

Students at a local middle school expressed their thoughts on bullying during Unity Day.

There was a sea of orange in the cafeteria at Henley Middle School on Wednesday, as students wore shirts with the words "YOU ARE A HERO WHEN YOU ARE A FRIEND."

The campaign aims to stop bullying in schools, and students at Henley say they've seen a change.

"We should be kind to others and it doesn't matter if you hang out with them as a group," says Aubrey Campbell, 8th grade. "You should be nice to everyone no matter who they are."

"The best way to get information about kids having trouble is kids letting us know, so what we want to let the kids know is that they have a voice," Assistant Principal Jason Crutchfield said. "Anything they have a problem with they can let an adult know."

This is a national event, and is celebrated at schools around the country.
