LC father speaks out against bullying

JENNINGS, LA (KPLC) -

A Lake Charles father spoke to Jennings High School students on Friday, February 24 about the effects of bullying and how it lead his daughter to her death. 

Len Pauley is the father of 15-year-old Hannah Pauley who committed suicide in October 2011 because of what he says was a result of being bullied.

"It'll be four months on the 25th and everyday is a struggle," Pauley said.

As a way to cope with losing his daughter, he is now reaching out to help kids who might be in similar situations that Hannah was in. By speaking to the students and faculty, he told them about Hannah's life and her achievements. And how bullying lead to her death.

"If I can just touch one life, then job well done," Pauley said. He said he wants kids to know that there are ways to rise above being bullied and let them know that if they need someone to talk to, the students can always turn to him.

Pauley also told the kids to stand up against bullies. If they see their peers being teased or bullied, stand up against bullying. 

Watch the attached video for more on Pauley's fight against bullying and see reaction from students at Jennings High School.
