Freeport students combat bullying
FREEPORT (AP) — Dressed in trench coats, Freeport High School students created a flash mob to deliver a strong message at Lincoln Mall in Freeport. There were songs, plenty of laughter, but the subject was serious. These students hope to make a difference by making a video to address the problem of bullying. The video will be shown on the local broadcast station at the high school, and uploaded to YouTube.
The students converged at the mall recently to film the video. They are all students in the broadcast class taught by Tim Connors. Senior Adam Beach said he was proud to be part of the project to convey the message that bullying is hurtful, and a problem many students face in their every day lives.
"Bullying is emotional and physical abuse and by making this video we hope to lessen the percentage of people who suffer at the hands of others," Beach said. "This is a video that needs to be seen by everyone — we are presenting statistics."
