BHS "Bulldoze Bullying" Mentors
Barberton High School Advancement to Nursing students Dorian Carter (Barberton High School), Sydney Neugebauer (Wadsworth High School), and Megan McCrosky (Barberton High School) with the volunteer help, Linda Lewis, Cameron Baker, Kylie Haynes and Rebecca Hosbach presented "Bulldoze Bullying" to the Barberton Middle School Students. The presentation also included speakers Ryan Madigan (Kickboxing Academy) and Missy McClain (Akron Children's Hospital).
After a kick off meeting with the middle school students in February, the Advancement to Nursing students requested volunteers to be mentors for the anti-bullying program. The goal of the program was to be a student led program for high school students to mentor middle school students; and, bridge the gap of transition from middle school to high school. On March 4th the High School student completed a seven hour training with Missy McClain. These High School students will meet with the middle school students last Monday of the every month at lunch.
This project was completed with grant money and the support of Greta A. Lax, Center Director Akron-Region Interprofessional Area Health Education Center (ARI-AHEC), Adeola Olaoluwa NEOMED AHEC, and Missy McClain Community Program Education Coordinator School Health Services Akron Children's Hospital.
