Nancy A. Waters, Muskegon County Clerk, and staff from both the clerk’s office and the circuit court records office joined with the National Stomp Out Bullying organization to bring awareness to this important and very serious issue. The two offices will wear the blue tee shirts shown every Friday until Monday October 5, 2015, which is “World Day of Bullying Prevention.”  This promotion will support the activities on October 5.

A nationally published report states that 1 in 6 students reported that they have been the victim of some form of bullying, or have witnessed others being bullied. The report also notes that 9 out of 10 LGBT students reported being harassed and bullied last year. Bullying occurs both in person and through social media.

The combined staff of the two offices will strive to bring awareness to this issue plaguing so many young people in schools and during social activities.
