Mark Nalesnik was blunt in his message to the Panther Valley School Board Thursday night:
"We have a bullying problem in this district and you need to address it."
Nalesnik, the Carbon County Emergency Management Coordinator, stressed he was speaking as a parent and not in his professional capacity.
He was one of about 50 people in attendance at the meeting, and one of about 10 who spoke about bullying issues.
Jenn Fox of Summit Hill and her seventh-grade daughter, Kamryn Clifford also spoke to the board.
