On Tuesday, October 16th, David Daggett of Daggett Shuler Law visited Meadowlark Elementary School in Winston-Salem as part of the 2 Stop Bullying program sponsored by WFMY 2 and the Good Morning Show. A report on this engaging event is available here.
As part of Bullying Awareness Month, the WFMY 2 Good Morning Show Team brought their anti-bullying message to Meadowlark Elementary School—one of over 80 schools located within the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School System.
Attorney David Daggett joined them to help spread a vital message: If we can stop even one child from being attacked or targeted, then we’ve made a difference.
According to the feedback received, this powerful sponsorship helps provide fantastic exposure for the cause—and is highly appreciated by the community. Every week during the month of October, the WFMY 2 Good Morning Show plans to bring their powerful anti-bullying message to a different elementary school in the district.
Bullying is any unwanted, aggressive actions among school-aged children involving a type of power imbalance—real or perceived. The federal government defines bullying as “any aggressive or unwanted behavior used again and again to isolate, harm, or control another person.”
