Quinton Aaron Brings Anti-Bullying Message to Chadron Public Schools

Quinton Aaron, the star of the hit movie The Blind Side, spoke to Chadron Public School students on November 14th, 2016.  Quinton is the head of the Quinton Aaron Foundation which allows him to bring his anti-bullying message to students across the country.

Quinton talked to students in grades 3-8 during the morning program and high school students during the afternoon assembly.  During the program, Quinton weaved his personal story of bulling into a larger message whereby he challenged students to "be nice to each other" and to never give the bully their power.  He encouraged students to talk to an adult to if they are being bullied.

At the end of the assembly, Quinton took time to take pictures with all of the students.  Many of the students gave him high fives, fist bumps and hugs.  We even had a few dabs.  Many students sold $10 tickets to win the opportunity to have dinner with Quinton and his staff.  The dinner will
take place on November 18th and a member of the foundation will contact the winner.

Quinton Aaron will wrap up his visit to Chadron with a presentation at Chadron State College on 11/14/16 at 7 PM in the Chicoine Center.
