Coming Thursday: Anti-bullying program aims to empower bystanders

TRAVERSE CITY — West Middle School wasn't Dustin Henrichs' favorite place.

Every day, other students picked on him, called him fat, nerd, loser, and shoved him around. Some even suggested he kill himself, he said.

Traverse City Area Public Schools administrators hope students no longer will have to face and accept such behavior from others. They're rolling out a new anti-bullying program this month that aims to create a better environment and empowers teachers to follow through with bullying complaints.
