Giant Helps Lynbrook Students Stand Up to Bullies

Lynbrook South MS students participate in youth conference with Keith Davis.

You don't need to be a giant to stand up to bullying, but former New York Giant Keith Davis helped local students learn how to tackle this issue.

A group of students from Lynbrook South Middle School’s Peer Leadership attended the "Our Kids in Action 12th Annual Youth Conference: Stand Up and Speak Out Against Bullying" on Dec. 7 at Long Island University's CW Post campus.

There, the former NFL player spoke to students about the importance of accepting people's differences. He also provided them with tools they can use to be courageous, and stand up and speak out against bullying.

After attending the conference, students met with adviser Jennifer Arena to discuss what they could do to help continue to promote anti-bullying awareness at their school. Students began by creating a bulletin board that highlighted the importance of caring, respect, sharing and thoughtfulness. They also put together special anti-bullying lessons to present to the sixth-graders at their school.
