Bullying Prevention Walk
About 150 peple turned out Saturday morning for the Bullying Prevention Walk in downtown Cheyenne. Chris Zimny, Safe and Drug Free School counselor at Johnson Junior High and South High, says the event was organized by the Safe Scchool Ambassadors from Cheyenne’s high schools. Zimny says real change will have to come from the students.
Governor Matt Mead and his family joined the walk from the Depot to the State Capitol. The Governor said it was “remarkable” that Saturday’s march was started by students. The Governor encouraged students and all Wyoming residents to stand up and say bullying is not acceptable on any level.
Cheyenne Councilwoman Georgia Broyles read a proclamation from Mayor Rick Kaysen declaring March 24th as Bullying Prevention Day in Cheyenne.
