Over 200 members of the Anderson elementary 5th and 6th grades are now "Bully Busters".
The anti-bullying program began last August and today's assembly honored students for their success. One of the classes even sang a song about integrity.
Organizers say the goal is to use a peer-to-peer setting in which older students mentor younger ones about why bullying is bad.
"Kids have a way of talking to kids and they want to talk," says Tom Henry, the advisor for Bully Busters". "When they won't talk to adults or administration they will talk to their own age or close to their age. These kids were very open."
Henry hopes the 5th and 6th grade students will carry the program into middle school and high school.
