Sheriff Maurer and Prosecutor Lutz host anti-bullying workshop

On Friday November 4th students, grades, 5-8 from school districts throughout Wayne County, came together at the Ramseyer Farms north of Wooster to celebrate their completion of being student Ambassadors for their schools and fellow students. Over 100 students and teachers came together for a 5 hour workshop to talk and discuss what their roles are in “anti-bullying” in concert with the Olweus Program already in place for their schools.

 The day was hosted by Wayne County Sheriff Thomas G. Maurer, Wayne County Prosecutor Daniel Lutz and the staff of Tri-County Schools.

 Maurer and Lutz commended the students in “stepping forward and being pioneers” for their fellow classmates in this challenging topic.

 Mrs. Ohio, Melanie Miller, gave a personal account of being bullied while in school and how she cooped with the issues making her a stronger, more compassionate person.
