The consequences of bullying have gained attention in the last year and many local school districts are holding anti-bullying programs to prevent it. Challenge Day has been in several Bend La Pine Schools over the last year. Mt. View senior, Ryan Kelly has participated in past years and says students walk away with a lot: “You see them sitting in the class in the back of the room, quiet kids. You hear their testimony and adversity they've faced. It gives you a whole new respect for the organization and for the students. It makes you think, what's on the inside is different from the outside. It's amazing how different the two are.” Several schools this week have held these Challenge Days, including Summit and La Pine High Schools and Seven Peaks.
