Playroom representatives attended the "What'z Da Count on Bullying" event at Locke High School in Los Angeles on the evening of Tuesday May 29th. The event was held prior to the Locke High School Athletics Awards Banquet and was hosted by What'z Da Count spokesman SFC. Farron Dozier whose organization focuses on Sickle Cell Trait Awareness. The evenings festivites included music provided by DJ Tantrum and speakers on topics that included Sickle Cell Trait, Sickle Cell Anemia, Lupus and the key topic Bullying. One of the evenings main highlights was speaker Curtis Williams whose book " Think Like A Leader, Not A Follower" encourages young people to be leaders in their community and stand up against bullying. the event was very succesful as it gave the students an opportunity to be educated on various topics and gave them the tools and information they need to continue to be successful. The evening concluded with the students recieveing their various awards for academic and athletic achievement but left them with a question that we should all ask ourselves "Am I a leader or a follower?" which one are you?
