SIC Students Hold Anti-Bullying Campaign
Members of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society at Southeastern Illinois College held an anti-bullying campaign last month to inform students about the various types of bullying. Pictured is Shawna Browning of Carmi (left) explaining to Breanna Bergeron of Norris City about how bullying can happen anywhere and to anyone. The club gave some pointers on how to help stop bullying at school, online or in the community, and asked fellow students to sign a pledge to stand up to bullying. The group also visited Carmi’s Jefferson Elementary School to help raise awareness at the elementary level. According to the club, bullying goes way beyond hitting and name calling, and includes such things as malicious texts, inappropriate use of camera phones, alienating others, inappropriate gestures, etc. For more information on how to help someone who is being bullied, visitwww.apa.org/topics/bullying.
