Governor Matt Bevin held a ceremonial signing of an anti-bullying bill Thursday. Senate Bill 228 gives a statewide definition for bullying in the K-12 school system.
Thirteen year-old Lone Oak Middle School student Morgan Guess and her mom Susan joined bill co-sponsors Senator Dorsey Ridley and Mike Wilson. In a news release, Bevin said "“No child should ever fear going to school or participating in events because of a bully."
Susan and Morgan Guess formed the Guess Anti-Bullying Foundation in 2011 after Morgan had experienced bullying at the age of eight. They have raised nearly $50,000 through their work bringing awareness to anti-bullying efforts.
