Albany County Joins Forces with Choices 301 Focusing Attention on Bullying Prevention
May 19, 2014
Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy, Albany County Sheriff Craig D. Apple, Sr. and Albany County Alternate Public Defender Sherri Brooks will join Ed Frank of Choices 301 and eighth grade students from Farnsworth Middle School to talk about what bullying is and how to stop it.
Albany County launched its Bullying Prevention Task Force last September with a press conference at Farnsworth Middle School. Task Force member Erica Gross will speak about a recent incident where she was harassed so badly at a local school during a presentation that she stopped the program and left. She will be joined by Bailey Wind. The message is that bullying is not a one shot program. The voices of the individuals that are VICTIMS must be heard so they know they are not alone.
The program will be held at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, May 21 at Choices 301, 6378 Gun Club Road, Altamont.
