School Kicks Off Anti-Bullying Campaign


The message in the video is loud and clear although the students don't say anything.

The video was produced by Rachael Kepler, a senior at Carthage High School. 

She says she has seen and experienced bullying.

On Tuesday, she wore blue to represent anyone who has been cyber bullied.

"It was also a lot of emotional bullying along with it. It started out as rumors and then it went on the internet," she said.

The video is just one of many projects which are part of the school's anti-bullying week.

The effort is a kick-off to a year-long program that teaches students the dangers of bullying.

Trevor Thornton, a student at Carthage High School, decided he wanted to do something about bullying and got the program going.

It's sickening. It's sad to see someone be torn down to tear and sobbing their eyes out," he said.

To show that this kind of behavior is not okay, each day this week the students will wear a different color in support of people who are bullied in school.

School leaders stress that saying no to bullying is an important message.

Officials say they plan to continue the program in the years to come, tackling bullying one step at a time.
