Administration and faculty at North Central High School (NCHS) are emphasizing the “power of the bystander” in a school-wide effort to stand up to bullying. February was bullying awareness month at NCHS, a way to start a conversation on the mental, emotional and physical effects of bullying on individuals and the community. The school held weekly events to increase student awareness and help foster new relationships between students.
