BCPD and T&F Fight Bullying in Schools

Bear Creek Police Chief Shane Whitten recently conducted an anti-bullying study with the after school program at Phillips Elementary School. During this class, Chief Whitten taught approximately forty students about various types of bullying and the last effects it has on the people who are bullied.  He also taught them ways to cope with the behavior if they are being bullied as well as how to assist a friend who has been bullied.  


Upon completion of the program, the students participated in a contest.  Students in kindergarten through second grade completed coloring sheets on the subject.  Then, the students in third through fifth grades and sixth through eighth grades had two divisions in a poster contest.  The finished products were displayed in the hallways of Phillips Elementary and High Schools throughout the week, and winners were chosen in each division. For each winner, the Bear Creek branch of Traders and Farmers Bank donated a Bee A Saver savings account and a t-shirt. Winners of each division are shown in the photo to the left with T&F representative Gina Berrian and Chief Whitten. For the K-2 division, Lauren Welch was chosen as the winner. In 3-5, Morgan Wilson won, and Annalisa Crenshaw won the 6-8 division.
