Stop BullyingA group of Delta State students and community residents, with the support of the Exchange Club of Cleveland, held an Anti-Bullying event on the campus in retaliation of social media Yik Yak and Gaggle. These sites promote anonymous posts which often result in bullying and child abuse. Attendees ate hotdogs, listened to music and heard a variety of speakers.
