A traveling presentation for public schools and colleges is making a stop this week at Pinegrove Middle School in East Syracuse with an anti-bullying message to empower students to step in and be a superhero of sorts.  The co-founder of Sweethearts and Heroes, Tom Murphy is a former mixed martial arts athlete.  In one demonstration, he acts as a bully towards a student and has two other students dressed in capes respond by actively causing a distraction, empowering the victim to speak up to him.

Two Nottingham High School Seniors are waiting to see if their “Bully Proof” campaign to shield and stop others from bullying will advance from the State level to a national competition.
