AC's Club Express to address bullying

LUFKIN, December 1, 2013-- As the topic of bullying receives national attention at every level of academics, student groups are taking the initiative to ensure the plague stops before it spreads.

Club Express, a group of Angelina College students in Suzi Honeywell’s Business and Professional Speaking class, will gather outside the AC Student Center from 10:50-11:25 a.m.,, on Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 2, and 3, to collect survey data regarding students’ opinions on the subject of bullying and how it affects their daily lives; the club will then use the data collected to formulate “the next steps.”

The survey includes questions regarding the potential for on-campus groups formed specifically to address student concerns, along with ideas on how to share such information as preventative measures and contacts who deal specifically with bullying.

The club’s flyer requests that students “Join us in our mission to break the silence and to assist in the development of young men and women with a sense of understanding and compassion for others.

“Bullying and harassment is unacceptable; and private citizens, school students at all levels, parents, educators, religious leaders, business owners, and politicians have taken the position against this willful, hurtful, conscious, and very offensive behavior.”

Sam’s Club will furnish refreshments for the events. Club Express will also offer membership to those interested.
