ST. LOUIS, MO – The CyberBully Hotline’s co-founder has been recognized in the Megan Meier Foundation’s annual awards program for his efforts to help schools address bullying.
The nationally-known foundation’s awards program honors individuals who are drawing attention to the devastating impact that bullying and cyberbullying can have on students.
CyberBully Hotline co-founder Paul Langhorst graciously accepted the foundation’s Voice of Dedication Award at their annual Celebration for Change event in St. Louis.
“I’m deeply honored by this award and happy to be a part of the Megan Meier Foundation’s positive work in communities across the country,” said Mr. Langhorst.
In addition to his role at the CyberBully Hotline, Mr. Langhorst serves as Chairman of the Megan Meier Foundation Board of Directors and volunteers his time to many other charitable endeavors in the St. Louis area.
Mr. Langhorst helped launch the CyberBully Hotline in March 2012, and in just over two years, it has become one of the leading anonymous bully reporting programs in use by U.S. K-12 schools. The service has been recognized with multiple national awards and has helped many schools successfully prevent or quickly resolve incidents of bullying, fighting, and other issues.
Other honorees in this year’s Megan Meier Foundation awards included pop music superstar Lady Gaga, Martial Arts Hall of Fame member Jermaine André, and K-12 educational leader Dr. Gary VanMeter.
