Guam - With the swearing-in of school resource officers today, students of John F. Kennedy High School also made a strong statement about crime on campus. According to JFK principal Ken Chargualaf, his students organized today's wave against anti-bullying in front of their school along Marine Corps Drive.

He said, "This is a testament of why they're doing this: they want everyone to know that John F. Kennedy is a safe place to learn." Chargualaf says his administration is also excited to welcome their assigned SRO Louie Songa.

Chargualaf hopes the Guam Education Board will reconsider allowing the SRO to be armed while on campus, in order to enforce the law.
