Mandan Mayor speaks to Middle School Students on Bullying

Posted: Updated:

The word, bullying, has been used countless times in the last few years, and Mandan Middle school is raising awareness and educating their students.

Today 7th and 8th graders met with Mayor Arlyn Van Beek, as part of the week long Brave Challenge. The Mayor stressed the importance of being a good citizen starting in school and bringing those skills to their community.

Mayor Van Beek said that there is one key element to creating a bully free environment,"I would put respect in there first. To respect themselves in the classroom, respect their teachers, their elders and their parents. I think if they can work outward from there, we will have great citizens in the future."

The students also got to speak with City Commissioner Dot Frank. She stressed the importance of getting their opinions heard on what they would like to see happen in Mandan. 

Tomorrow will be the final day of Brave Challenge activities. The school will hold more activities throughout the school year.
