Hardin Valley students honored for anti-bullying campaign

Local leaders are praising students for their work to combat bullying in our schools.

Knoxville mayor Madeline Rogero and Chief David Rausch honored nine Hardin Valley students involved with 'Project-U" on Tuesday.

In partnership with the Knoxville Police Department, the students produced an anti-bullying campaign that received national recognition.

They wrote and performed in ten public service announcements where they talked about the importance of putting a stop to bullying.

Two of the girls involved in the project say they hope to take the project even further.

"I know that we've already spread it through the community and through the county, but we're really hoping to take it to the state level so that everywhere kids can feel like they fit in and are welcomed," said Madalyn Neal, senior.

Both students plan to attend college out of state, and hope they can continue their mission outside of Tennessee as well.
