George Bell holds a smiling elementary school student

George Bell, a former Harlem Globetrotter and one of the tallest living men in the world, visited our elementary schools to encourage students to stand tall against bullying.

Bell discussed the various types of bullying students might encounter and gave suggestions for what students could do if someone tries to bully them or if they see someone being bullied.

Bell encouraged students to be kind to those who were being bullied and to tell an adult if they witness bullying taking place. He also admitted that he was a bully himself as an elementary student and talked about some of the factors that might cause a student to bully another student.

The former Guinness World Record holder took time to take photos with each class at both schools and even signed AHES art teacher Mr. Wenn's Harlem Globetrotter basketball!
