Rodeo Clown Counsels Students Against Bullying

by Rillene Nielsen

Rodeo clown JJ Harrison doesn’t kid around when it comes to bullying. In an assembly on Friday, March 4, 2016, JJ taught students how to “buck bullies out of their lives.”

He explained how students could tell the difference between bullying and simple teasing.  Bullying is “repeated aggressive behavior with an imbalance of power” he taught.  Then he offered five steps students could take to ensure they are not acting like bullies.
