Students Participate in Anti-Bullying Campaign

Over the past several months, students at Elwood-John H. Glenn High School worked diligently on designing posters for the Suffolk County Anti-Bullying Campaign. Students were to design original poster art for submission to the countywide competition.

Elwood-John H. Glenn High School Anju Okamura earned third place for her creation and was recognized at a special ceremony on May 30, during which County Executive Steve Bellone honored the winners. Okamura’s artwork will be displayed throughout October, which is Bully Prevention Month.

In addition to the Suffolk County competition, the JGHS PTSA conducted its own anti-bullying poster contest. The following students were recognized by the PTSA and received a letter from Principal Dr. Vincent Mulieri: Samantha Benedetto, Natalie Cozzolino, Angelina Gabrielli, Jovannah Gerisma, Fallon Gilbert, Kristofer Kwan, Alyssa Lampros, Darren Merlin, Gillian Murphy, Anju Okamura, Jessica Segal and Perri Wiggin.

All submissions will be displayed at the high school to kick off the ongoing campaign against bullying and cyberbullying.

Congratulations to all participants and special thanks to Mrs. Sherwood and Ms. Kalinowski for their efforts in coordinating these competitions.
