Representatives of the School Based Youth Services Program use national cyberbullying statistics to warn Warren Hills students about the dangers of cyberbullying during a Nov. 26 library showcase. The presentation featured a slide show that also called attention to the dangers of sexting. School Based Therapist Terri Grenot and peer leaders spoke every block about the topic. The presentation covered the legal implications of cyberbullying alongside regular bullying. They finished the showcase by talking about why sexting is dangerous and illegal. They used a heartbreaking video about Canadian Amanda Todd, a 15-year-old victim of cyberbullying who ended her own life in 2012. (Photo by John P. Veneziano)
