Atlanta, GA - On December 7, 2011 the 600 students at Crawford Long Middle attended a STOP The Bullying Assembly. The assembly was planned and sponsored by the Power Over Prejudice Ambassadors in partnership with the National Junior BETA Club, Successful Motivated Articulate Responsible Tenacious Scholars (S.M.A.R.T.S.), and the Anti-Defamation League.

In addition to special performances by the CWL middle school band  and the school cheerleaders, Ms. Tahjae Hermans and the Student Advisory Group performed an Anti-Bullying Rap. The keynote speaker for the event was international youth empowerment and soft skills expert, Al Duncan. Using Duncan Nuggets®—short success principles and action steps—he stressed the importance of valuing yourself and others. Duncan exclaimed to the students, "Duncan Nugget #317 is: People are priceless!"  The event ended with the entire student body reciting the school's Anti-Bullying Pledge.
