HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

D'Iberville High School students who make up an anti-bullying organization called The Cloud Effect gave hugs and words of encouragement to younger students at a camp hosted by the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department.  

According to their Facebook page, the group “was created to bring awareness and support to the growing issue of bullying in today's youth.”

Freshman and Cloud Effect Co-Founder Mena Landry said, “We have our Facebook page and we post encouraging messages, encouraging videos and we talk to our friends and post on social media about how to encourage each other and lift each other up.”

Initially, they were nervous about how the program would be received. However, freshman and Co-Founder Mary Kaitlyn Jones says there has been a lot of support for the program.

Students from The Cloud Effect were invited to speak to elementary and middle school students participating in Brave Camp, where younger students are learning about various types of bullying and how to prevent it from happening.

“I'm just always being the one that tells, and people say I'm being a tattletale, but really I'm just trying to help the person,” said camp participant Aiden Morton.

Students who have attended in the past say the camp is a good reminder to encourage their peers to be positive and treat everyone with respect.
