United Against Bullying Program Helping to Create School Bus Stars

If you’ve ever wondered how to become a school star, Minnesauke Elementary School from East Setauket, NY, knows the answer. For more than two years school educators have taught students to be Sharing, Trustworthy, Accepting, Respectful, and Serving (S.T.A.R.S.). Last year, their program was selected for the 2015 United Against Bullying Grant. In December, two Safe Fleet brands, Seon and Fire Research Corp. (FRC), visited Minnesauke Elementary School in Three Village Central School District, to reward their educational team for the amazing work and presented the grant award for the development and expansion of their anti-bullying initiatives.

Mike Bismeyer, Sales Manager – Transit Division at Seon, and Lisa A. Radesco, Human Resource Manager, FRC, explained to the students how Safe Fleet and its brands started the United Against Bullying campaign and how important it is for young people to be involved.

“We believe that you guys are making a difference every day, whether you know it or not. It’s the little things that matter; it’s about being nice and kind,” said Bismeyer. “And we want you to remember, that no matter what you do every day, you are leaving an impression on somebody else. When you are not so nice people remember that, when you are nice people remember that more. Thanks for doing a great job spreading a positive message.”
