For their senior project, Old Forge High School seniors Brian Finnerty, Derek Drasba, John Vols and David Rudalavage have teamed up with Old Forge Elementary School student Nathan Cieslak.

This summer, Cieslak, a 10-year-old, fifth grade student, started selling T-shirts featuring a logo of his own design, and the slogan "Only You Can Prevent Bullying."

Cieslak's goal was for the shirts, priced at $12, to create a greater awareness of the problem of bullying.

The seniors wanted to focus on this cause as well, feeling that no matter what age or grade, everyone at one time or another has been bullied or has witnessed bullying.

The four seniors have planned several events and presentations for Wednesday, Oct. 10, "Unity Day" at Old Forge High School, and the high school students will be wearing Cieslak's T-shirt.

To order an "Only You Can Prevent Bullying" T-shirt, email Lirpacat1@yahoo.com or gcsweats@aol.com
