Anti-bullying rally held at four Longview schools

LONGVIEW - Being a bully is not cool. Four Longview schools invited Main Event wrestlers to speak about ways to deal with it. Thursday, the wrestlers visited Johnston-McQueen Elementary School and Judson Middle School. 
"They really look up to people successful in a sport," Johnston-McQueen Principal Denise Frederick said. 
The wrestlers talked about apologizing, telling a teacher, and being nice to others. They told stories of times they were bullied and how they stopped it. More than 600 students were screaming and yelling with excitement. Some even had to take a special timeout. 
Judson Middle School students reacted a little different than the elementary school. The wrestlers tried to use a different type of story line to get them interested in learning. 
"We strive at Judson Middle School to run a bully free school and a bully free campus," Judson Middle School Principal William Houff said. said. 
The wrestlers head to Ware and Hudson Pep Elementaries on Friday.
