Wooly No Bully is Cleveland County’s newest anti-bullying advocate. Wooly will work alongside school leaders to educate students about the importance of positive behavior and commits all of his time and energy to the prevention of bullying.

Through a hooves on the ground, grassroots effort, Wooly plans to have face-to-snout interaction with students. He will visit schools to introduce himself and his bully prevention program. Wooly also hopes to provide new children’s literature about his adventures and encounters.

“Wooly No Bully is a handful, but wholeheartedly cares about the well-being of every student,” said Greg Shull, Wooly’s current handler. “He has already visited with principals and Central Services and is almost ready to make his debut in our schools.”

For more information about Wooly or how to schedule Wooly for a visit, you can contact Wooly’s handler, Greg Shull, by phone at (704) 476-8030 or via email at gsshull@clevelandcountyschools.org.

“Wooly has a ton of energy and is certain to make an enormous impact,” said Ronny Funderburke, director of administrative services for Cleveland County Schools. “All pun intended, he plans to grab bullying by the horns and show it to the door as it is not welcomed in our schools or our community.”

If you wish to report bullying, call the Bullying Tip Line at (704) 476-8169 or report it anonymously by visiting the CCS website and clicking the “Report Bullying or Cyberbullying” link under the Students tab located in the top navigation menu.
