Anti-bullying campaign hits the road

Posted on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 at 5:00 am

Maya Akram-Chhatwal, a fourth-grader from Moss-Nuckols Elementary School, draws the school’s mascot on one of the cleats that will be worn by Kerry Wynn in the New York Giant’s Dec. 3 game against the Oakland Raiders.

New York Giants defensive lineman Kerry Wynn will carry Louisa County Public Schools’ anti-bullying message across the country on Sunday. He won’t be using a billboard or a cardboard sign. He’ll be using his cleats.

“I know a lot of people will be watching the game,” Wynn said. “It’s good for the kids to see this kind of message put out there like this.”

Twelve Louisa County Public School students gathered at Louisa County High School on Monday, Nov. 27, to decorate the football cleats donated by Wynn at the school division’s Countywide Anti-bullying Pep Rally on Oct. 26.
