Northport K-8 School welcomed LA Hardy recently to bring his message of self respect , self esteem, feeling great about yourself, and how to say “Enough is Enough” to bullies. Mr. Hardy spoke about his past as a bully and he informed the students about the differences between teasing and bullying. He spoke with heartfelt emotion about his trips to Iraq and Afghanistan as part of a group of stand up comedians to bring special messages to the troops. Mr. Hardy, originally from Cleveland, Ohio presently is a radio host at WFLM 104.7 The Flame. He gave students an assignment to do something very nice for someone else, but don’t tell anyone you did it. Students were receptive and very well engaged in the message of bully prevention. Pictured are LA Hardy and some Northport middle grades students.
