Wooly No Bully Wins Gold
The 2018 Winter Olympics came to a close in South Korea as the United States brought home lots of medals from PyeongChang. While the teams were away, Wooly No Bully held down the fort at home by winning the gold in the category of Special Events/Program for effective school communications and public relations from the North Carolina School Public Relations Association (NCSPRA).
"We are extremely proud of Wooly and everything he has accomplished so far in helping thwart bullying in schools," said Greg Shull, Wooly's handler and director of communications for Cleveland County Schools. "Although Wooly is very deserving of such an esteemed award, his efforts are just beginning as he works day and night to keep bullying out of schools."
Wooly accepted the award himself at the NCSPRA Blue Ribbon Awards Brunch at the O. Henry Hotel in Greensboro, North Carolina.
"We will see a lot more of Wooly as he has big plans," added Shull. "His first book has already been written, illustrated, and will soon be sent to press."
