Park High School students work to raise awareness about cyberbullying


Park High School Air Force Junior ROTC cadets were very vocal on Monday and Tuesday of last week when they asked students to take a pledge to not engage in cyberbullying.

On Wednesday, however, they went silent.

To draw attention to the issue, Junior ROTC members didn't talk for a day. Nor did they text or use their cellphones.

In the military, it's called a "COMM OUT," said Kathy Roby, a Park aerospace instructor and retired chief master sergeant.
