As students entered the gym to find a half-pipe and four professional BMX riders Jan. 25, they walked into an arena they did not expect when they thought of “anti-bullying assembly.”

The ASA High School Tour is an engaging way for students to learn about the effects of bullying through the support of the Anti-Defamation League’s No Place for Hate Campaign and the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. The athletes included James Foster, Mykel Larrin, Dane Beardsley and Anthony Napolitan; these men performed all kinds of tricks on their bikes while an emcee discussed some facts about bullying and ways to prevent it.
