SPRING VALLEY - The suicide of two Monroe-Woodbury High School students last year was the focus of a special summit on cyber-bullying over the weekend.

The prevention seminar, held yesterday at the Holocaust Museum in Spring Valley, had a goal of bringing awareness to the problem that impacts thousands of teens every year in the Hudson Valley.

The meeting was also designed to educate people about the new laws that stiffen the penalties against online bullies.

Monroe teenagers Kameron Jacobsen and Justin Dimino committed suicide last January after family members say they were taunted online with gay slurs.
