Miss Greater Greer Teen Berkley Bryant said she witnessed a friend being bullied and it made a lasting impact.

Bryant, Miss Anderson Teen last year, has made it personal promoting her anti-bullying platform the past two years making South Carolina a “No Bully Zone” and encouraging everyone to take the anti-bullying pledge, “I Won’t Stand By, I Will Stand up!”

Greer Mayor Rick Danner and City Council presented Bryant a proclamation Tuesday designating it as “No Bullying Day”.

“When I was younger I had a friend who was bullied in elementary school,” Bryant said. “It is something that has stayed with me and I feel strongly about.”

The proclamation states that researchers have concluded that bullying is the most common form of violence, affecting millions of American children and adolescents annually.

This is the 10-year anniversary of October’s National Bullying Prevention month.

Bryant will compete in the Miss South Carolina Teen pageant in Columbia. Preliminaries are June 21-23 and finals are June 24.
