Don’t be a bully, be a buddy. This is one of the mottos that they encouraged to all the students at the Connect and Respect training at Poth High School on Dec. 4. Bullies aren’t cool.

There was a good turnout for the meeting that all of the sophomores and a few select juniors were invited to attend.

This meeting included a big range of emotions, good and bad. They talked about what it’s like to be bullied and why students and teachers should stand up and prevent bullies from striking out.

Science teacher Lynette Melton’s perspective on the program was that “it was a lot more emotional than I intended compared to the Ambassadors programs that were held last year. I think it was good for many of the students; it opened a lot of their eyes as to what is going on in other people’s lives.”

Sophomore Monica Korzekwa said, “I thought it was something that Poth High School really needed to have. I hope that it opened a lot of people’s eyes and will now have a better idea of what really goes on here.”

Sophomore Christina Gorzell said, “I thought it was good to be able to hear about what everyone goes through because now I know that there are people at our school that get bullied and we need to stop it.”

Math teacher Stacey Cooke said, “It was informative and I thought that most of the kids there were taking it seriously.”

Sophomore Abby Slagle said, “The meeting was very educational, and we got to see other people’s views and opinions and what they have gone through.”

The Connect and Respect program definitely made an impact on some of the students in this school. There is obviously a bully problem that we need to solve, and with this program there is hope for a safer school for everyone.
