This page is designated for spotlighting Kentucky schools who have implemented successful bullying prevention initiatives.​

Rock Band Features Newport High School Students in Anti-Bullying Music Video

Victor Spoils, a Cincinnati-based rock band, has filmed its latest music video with an anti-bullying theme in collaboration with Newport High School (NHS) and its drama program.

NHS drama students performed in the video and created props that were used throughout the song. Newport Students also creatively worked with the video's director and learned the many facets of filming and creating a music video.

Band members Aaron Ellis, Doug Lee, and Josh Neugebauer said the video will accompany their new single, "Bully," which has messages of positivity, kindness, and being oneself. The students help demonstrate these messages through various scenes in the video. 

Olweus

East Carter Middle School in Grayson, Kentucky implemented the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program during the 2015-16 school year in an effort to reduce bullying and have continued to use the program through the 2017-18 school year. Their diligence and hard work is spotlighted in Kentucky Teacher.

For more information about implementing Olweus in your school, contact the KDE Olweus trainer Debbie Sauber.
