Have you ever seen those prescription drug commercials that tout a medicine but also include long lists of potentially dangerous side effects?
Well, that’s how Brockbank Junior High student Jenne-Lee Cannon describes bullying – someone forcing you to take a drug that almost always carries negative side effects.
She talked about the dangers of bullying and how students can curb imperious behavior during a special presentation that kicked off an anti-bullying campaign at her school.
“Before you speak, use your head and your heart,” she said to the crowd of students.
Jenne-Lee started the campaign last year as part of a project to earn the Girl Scout Silver Award – the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. During that time, she has worked to engage her peers in starting an anti-bullying club at Brockbank.
She hopes to recruit at least 25-30 actively attending members in the coming weeks.
