When Susan Guess of Paducah, KY learned that her 8-year-old daughter was being bullied by a classmate, she was devastated. “I’m a 37-year-old mom, with a very close and open relationship with my child, yet she kept that information private from me,” she said. Guess asked her daughter Morgan what was going on and was finally told the truth about being bullied at school. “This was an eye opening experience about how little I and the school knew about bullying,” Guess said. “There was so much ignorance.” Guess became increasingly concerned about her child and other children who suffer in silence, so she and Morgan decided to open the conversation about bullying and share their story. Guess met with school leaders to raise awareness about the growing problem of bullying at their school. She also launched an anti-bullying campaign that would raise money to bring the film Bully and Director Lee Hirsch to their town.
