Bikers with a message. The kids at Shelley High School got a visit from “Bikers Against Bullies” this morning.
The group is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to raise awareness and empower communities to fight bullying. They want to encourage children to be respectful and empowered.
One of the teachers who helped put the event together says it’s a fun way to spread an important message.
“They have a really good message and kids need kind of a different outlook on things, a different take to combat bullying, to learn about different people, to learn to be themselves and make better decisions and these guys were perfect to spread that message,” says Pam Kantack, teacher.
One of the students who helped organize the assembly says he wanted to make a difference for his senior project. He says he was once bullied and wants to help spread the message that it’s okay to speak up.
“People don’t come out and show that they’re being bullied, they keep it in themselves and I was one of those people and I had struggles with it. So I wanted to make a difference so I contacted them because they can make a difference. They can tell people it’s alright, just ignore them, everything’s going to be okay,” says Cory Neilson, senior at Shelley High School.
The kids enjoyed the assembly. They got a positive message with a lot of laughs and lessons.
