Parents attend anti-bullying presentation at Monroe Woodbury H.S.

Posted: Updated:

Parents came together at Monroe Woodbury High School last night to learn how to protect their children from cyber-bullying.

Dozens of local parents attended the presentation on internet safety nearly two months after freshman student Kameron Jacobson took his own life due to bullying.
