Jacob Turner (’19), Emma Wallner (’19), Ryan Coffey (’21), and Brooke Wilson (’20), members of the student council, attended the Middle School Bullying Prevention Conference on Thursday, Oct. 12 at Towson University, organized by the Baltimore County Student Council.

“The conference primarily focused on bullying in middle schools,” Wallner, president of the student council, said. “I’d like to see a high school/middle school mentoring program to encourage HMS students to identify cases of bullying.”
