Board recognizes fifth-grade student for her work to eliminate bullying at her school

In 2009, the Hillsborough County Board of Commissioners established the Anti-Bullying Advisory Committee (ABAC) to develop a comprehensive anti-bullying strategy in the community. After its founding, the committee created the Anti-Bullying Recognition Award, which is given to a young person or group of young people up to age 19 to recognize their efforts to eliminate bullying.

At the October 6 meeting of the Hillsborough County Board of Commissionersthe Council honored Emma Campbell as the recipient of the 2022 Anti-Bullying Recognition Award. Eliah Ewing of Winward Wealth Management and a sponsor of the Annual Anti-Bullying Recognition Award also presented his annual special gift to the winner.

An 11-year-old fifth-grade student at Lawton Chiles Elementary School, Campbell is well known for her leadership, education, advocacy and advocacy efforts. During situations where her peers have attempted to tease or bully other children in the class, Campbell immediately stands up for those who have been victimized. Her compassion, patience and care inspired other students in her school to treat themselves with more acceptance and grace.

When she received her award, Campbell thanked the board and her family, encouraging her to treat everyone with respect.

“I hope this award shows everyone to be kind to others because everyone needs a friend,” she said.

The Council also issued two proclamations declaring October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month and breast cancer awareness monthand a commendation to Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office Hispanic Advisory Council.
