Guam - Over 70 fifth graders at Harry S. Truman Elementary celebrated their G.R.E.A.T. graduation this afternoon.

The program which stands for Gang Resistance Education And Training, aims to prevent delinquency, youth violence, and gang membership.

Fifth grade GREAT graduate Cyrus Santos reflects on what he's learned.

He said, "When you see something bad happening, you should do something to stop it. We should tell an adult until one listens and believes you. I learned a lot of new things. I know what to do if I see people bullying other kids."

U.S. Attorney for the District of Guam Alicia Limtiaco says today's graduates are now equipped with the know how to be positive role models for their younger siblings.
