“Kameron and Ryan have both been taking an active role in stopping bullying around the school, especially at school recess,” Schiavone said. “When they see bullying happen, they talk to the targeted student, and help remove that student from the situation and tell the bully to stop. Both boys are great role models on what a good friend looks like, and great role models to stop bullying in the sixth grade.”
Schiavone said the boys’ efforts show that they practice great character traits even when no one is looking.
