MHS senior creates anti-bullying video

My name is Josh Cronin and I am a senior at Malden High. For my senior internship project I created an anti-bullying PSA video which is 12 minutes long. I worked with Adrianne Nazzaro, the adjustment counselor at the Ferryway School, to create this PSA. It stars Ferryway students and features Rebecca Gordon and Adrianne Nazzaro talking about bullying.

Thank you,
Josh Cronin
