Haley talks bullying at Daniel Island School

DANIEL ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - Monday wraps up a month's work against bullying for Governor Nikki Haley.

She has been visiting classrooms all across the state to discuss bullying with students and on Monday she made a stop in the lowcountry at the Daniel Island school.

A recent study says more than 70 percent of students have said they were bullied. The governor has declared October the month to prevent bullying and says she wants to make South Carolina the friendliest state in the country with the least bullying.

"It's just to remind kids they have a decision to make. They can either be leaders or followers and if they see bullying, they can stand up for the child being bullied and they can tell a teacher, tell a parent," Gov. Haley said.

Gov. Haley joined together with many statewide "celebrities" for the project including Carolina and Clemson football coaches Steve Spurrier and Dabo Swinney.
