Last week, Kentucky State House passed HB 316, legislation to establish a definition for bullying in Kentucky schools.  Susan Guess is the founder of the Guess Anti-Bullying Foundation and her daughter Morgan testified in support of the measure.  On Sounds Good, Matt Markgraf speaks with the Guess' about how they have seen the issue of bullying change in the Commonwealth.

The lone dissenter of a Kentucky bill that would establish a statewide definition of bullying says the legislation is too broad. Kentucky's State House passed HB 316 last week.

Two out of every ten students experience bullying, says Susan Guess of the Guess Anti-Bullying Foundation. While this is an improvement, Guess says  it's still a large number of students and is unacceptable. She says we need to be intentional about how we treat one another and is demonstrating this in the first annual Paducah Kindness Color Walk planned for August 8th in Noble Park. On Sounds Good, Kate Lochte speaks with Guess about the event and other anti-bullying efforts.
