Assemblyman Kearns presents students with anti-bully awards

SOUTH BUFFALO - Assemblyman Mickey Kearns has worked tirelessly on anti-bully legislation. On Friday, April 12, he discussed the anti-bully legislation and what it means to stand up to bullies with the pre-kindergarten through fourth grade students at Buffalo Public School 72 (Lorraine Elementary) at 71 Lorraine Ave.

Later in the day, Kearns spoke to the fifth through eighth grade students about his anti-bully legislation.

While at the school he gave out awards to 13 pre-selected students that stood out to their teachers as “active bystanders,” someone who speaks up to bullies and potential bully situations.

The award ceremony took place simultaneously with the Jamey Rodemeyer family presentation. The family of the late Jamey Rodemeyer, the boy who was bullied constantly in middle and high school resulting in him committing suicide, presented the life and struggles to the fifth through eighth grade students at Lorraine Elementary.

At the conclusion of their presentation they announced the “Jamey Redemeyer Anti-Bully Award” to the students.

This award will be presented at the Bully Free 5K, which will take place at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 18 at Lorraine Elementary.
