Leah Curtis, seated in back, a freshman at Corry Area Middle-High School, this morning speaks to prekindergarten and kindergarten students at St. Thomas School about bullying. Anne Marie Waldemarson, guidance counselor for students in grades seven through nine at Corry Area Middle-High School, recommended Curtis apply to the Moose Youth Awareness Program, where older students make younger students aware of social issues, such as drug-and-alcohol use and bullying. The Moose then selected Curtis to represent them, and she chose “Bullying Is Whack” as her campaign. Curtis designed drinking cups with the logo and made posters giving facts about bullying. She also spoke to students in grades one and two at St. Thomas School, two classes at Conelway Elementary School and one class at Columbus Elementary School.
