RANDOLPH, NJ- Randolph High School's Team Harmony staged an anti-bullying assembly last week aimed at educating students and preventing bullying at the school.
Morris County Sheriff James M. Gannon, Sheriff’s Office Investigator Ashley Craig and state Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco – all champions of Morris County’s “Stigma-Free” campaign – were guests at the event that featured students singing, dancing, reciting poetry and acting out skits with messages of inclusion and anti-cruelty.
“Through music, words and dance, the gifted students involved in Team Harmony showed wisdom and insight that some adults never acquire. I was very moved by the performances,” Sheriff Gannon said.
Team Harmony was also recognized at the assembly by Kean University for the video it created featuring anti-bullying messages. The video’s script and message won Kean University’s 2019 Fritz Jonach Upstander Award, which was presented at the assembly by Sarah Coykendall, assistant director of the Diversity Council at Kean University.
Randolph High School teacher Lisa Holloway is the advisor for Team Harmony and helps coordinate all of the group's programs.
