Anti-Bullying program at Benton Harbor School


An anti-bullying campaign is in full force at a Benton Harbor school.

Some people in the music industry heard about what STEAM Academy is doing.

Today they made a stop at schools in the region - a tour focused on preventing bullying.

Kcane Markco of New Water Entertainment said, "We don't want the next president of the United States to be a victim of bullying and it go undetected and unhelped."

Family Coach Charles Patterson says part of STEAM's anti-bullying program is about rewarding students who do good.

It was one of the reasons students in good standing were invited to a Valentine's Dance last month to help kick-off the program.

"We tend to focus on the negative things. They seem to overpower the good. Now our students are realizing, you make good choices, you do good things, you'll be rewarded," Patterson said.

The school's principal told us that she believes students are making better choices due to the program.

Right now - they're still working out the details on the next event for students.
