Chattanooga Youth & Family Development Department Launches Anti-Bullying Campaign

  Last week, Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke asked staff at the city’s Youth and Family Development Centers to proactively address hazing and bullying.  Mayor Berke made this directive after an incidentinvolving basketball players from Ooltewah High School.  The rest of Ooltewah’s basketball season has been canceled.  Some parents of team members say the incident was part of a pattern of bullying and harassment.

On Around and About, we’ve been asking what can be done to prevent hazing.  Today, we’re discussing it with Lurone "Coach" Jennings and Enora "Nori" Moss from the City of Chattanooga's Department of Youth and Family Development, which has launched a new “Good Decision Making / Stop Bullying and Hazing Campaign.”
