LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Faculty, staff, and students in Lee County took a stand against bullying.

On Wednesday, Lee County High School celebrated Unity Day.

The idea was an effort to get students to come together in support of anti-bullying.

Those participating wore orange to show their support and also made pledge cards, aimed at treating others with kindness and respect.

Students said that the event helps address one large problem in our society.

"Bullying is a pretty serious problem. A lot of people have dealt with it in the past, so today's the day to stand up and say that it's wrong," said senior Chihye Kim.

"This is an epidemic in our country. Bullying comes in all sizes and colors. It's overt, it's direct, it's indirect. It's just a problem we face in our schools," explained Social Worker Lisa Bailey with the Lee County Schools.

This was the first year they held the anti-bullying event.
