East High School program tries to stamp out bullying


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — At Tuesday night’s Youngstown Board of Education meeting, members of East High School’s Destination Imagination team made a presentation to the board.

The team detailed its community service project: “Hand in hand, together we can help stamp out bullying.”

They’re hosting an event this weekend, featuring vendors and speakers, including students, sharing their experiences with bullying in Youngstown City Schools.

“I’ve seen kids being talked about behind their backs, I’ve seen kids being looked down on, and I’ve seen some really sad things, and I even go through it everyday as a student,” said Michelle Morgan, an East High school senior.

The Destination Imagination stamp out bullying event is Saturday. It runs from noon to 2 p.m. at the Spanish Evangelical Church on Keystone Avenue in Youngstown.

Everyone is welcome. Attendees can even make their own anti-bullying T-shirt for free.
