Video Tribute to Brunswick Student Matthew Homyk Accompanies Push for Anti-Bullying Measures



  • Homyk
Brunswick High School is reeling this week after two student suicides shocked the community in the past week.

School administrators have tried to quell the conjecture surrounding the deaths of Matthew Homyk and Anthony Gill, but many students have cited bullying and rallied around possible solutions. (Homyk is featured in a tribute video, embedded below, that is accompanying the wave of social media discussion.)

Grief counseling is being offered to students. A boycott of classes on Tuesday drew attention to the demand for further anti-bullying measures. Around 60 or 70 students staged a boycott Tuesday morning, spurring conversation among themselves and with the school's administration.
