Stu Grimson visits the Picture Me: The Effects of Bullying Project

On Thursday night, Stu Grimson spoke to teens and young adults at the Nashville Public Library for the Picture Me: The Effects of Bullying Project. The project is an on-going project put on by the library to inform kids and parents that bullying remains an ongoing problem in the lives of our youth and often teens do not have an outlet through which to express themselves about this important and timely issue.

Grimson used his experience in his early life, his NHL playing days and his time as an attorney to talk to the audience about being positive in life and protecting your friends and peers from bullying.

Through the four-week project, teens have an opportunity to capture their thoughts and feelings about bullying and to communicate them through photography and words. The project concludes with an exhibit of the teens’ works at the library. Participants receive weekly incentives to attend the classes and those participants who attend all four weeks are entered into a drawing for a grand prize.
