tcstormKEARNEY, Neb. – The Tri-City Storm organization has teamed up with Central Community College in a pledge to stand up and prevent bullying across central Nebraska.

The campaign, which kicked off at the CCC campus in Hastings on Oct. 28, will continue at the Viaero Event Center during the Storm game on Friday Nov. 8, where a bullying prevention pledge banner will be on display for fans to sign.

Storm players and staff appeared on campus and encouraged students to take the pledge to stand against bullying.

This is an effort which both organizations plan to build on throughout the year.

“We’re excited to team up with CCC for this campaign,” said Alicia Korte, the Storm’s group sales and customer relations manager. “October was National Bullying Prevention Month and we thought this was the perfect time to start our campaign and have a CCC group night. Bullying affects people of all ages and we are making sure the issue gets the attention it deserves.”

When the Storm take on the Omaha Lancers on Friday, Central Community College will have a presence at the game, bringing a group of students, faculty and staff.

If you are a member of CCC and wish to attend the group night, contact the Viaero Event Center Box Office at308.338.8011 for group pricing information.

The Friday night game is the only contest of the week for Tri-City, who will hit the road until later in the month, when they return to Kearney to once again face the Lancers on Nov. 29 and 30.
