Ryan’s Story Presented


In an effort to raise awareness of the effects that bullying has on students, Lindenhurst Middle School hosted Ryan’s Story, an antibullying program based upon the life and death of 13-year-old Ryan Halligan. Ryan was a middle school student from Vermont who died by suicide in 2003 due to depression and constant bullying.            

In an emotional presentation that included a slideshow of Ryan throughout the years, Ryan’s father, John Halligan, recounted the story of his son’s life and the ridicule he endured. In separate sessions for students and parents, he discussed the devastating impact his son’s suicide has had on his family, and the power of forgiveness.
