Parish students learn how to handle pressures

Submitted by Vicki Little

Cameron Parish Schools participated in a Bullying Awareness program at Grand Lake High School.

Be the Change Bullying Awareness Event was held on Wednesday, Feb, 6, at Grand Lake High School. All four schools grades 7-12 were invited to attend. The Positive Behavior Team at GLHS wrote grants to cover expenses.

Over 450 students, faculty, staff, and administrators experienced a day of activities including working in small groups that were made up of different schools, grades, and boys and girls from Cameron Parish. The purpose of the event was to promote a more positive school climate in Cameron Parish going into the second half of a rigorous school year. All groups also experienced tasks that involved team work and communication, while having fun with music, beach balls, and door prizes.

A highlight of the day was the guest speaker, Tom Thelen, a motivational speaker who promotes changing one’s own character to become stronger and more able to handle the pressures of today’s world for young people. His message included “Be Resilient, Set Boundaries, and Be the Change.” Young people were able to return to their small groups to discuss ways to use his message in their own lives, as well as in their schools.

A skit was performed by the GLHS student body to promote Bullying Awareness. Although presenting a serious topic, the students mixed important information with humor for a very entertaining and enlightening performance.

Grants and monetary support came from the following organizations: Cameron LNG, Branch Out and Grow Grant by the Junior League of Lake Charles, Jason’s Deli, Brown’s Market, Subway & Giggles, Boone’s Corner, and the Cameron Parish School Board.
