Dean Hornberger, V.P./Chief Technology Officer of The Camel Project
"Bullying is a growing issue as reflected in the increasing violence in our schools and the increasing awareness of sexual harassment in, and out of, the workplace. The Camel Project is attempting to address this issue both in schools and in society at large. As a board member, I look forward to assisting Pam and the other board members in combating this stain on our society."

Solicitor

Robin Gray, Esq., Atty., Law Office of Robin J. Gray
"I resonate with the Camel Project as I was a victim years ago of bullying and domestic abuse. I see the consequences of bullying in the legal system when managing cases involving children and youth as well as custody and divorce cases as well as individuals in the prison system. If bullying and domestic abuse were prevented and yet better, eliminated, there would not be the number of complex emotional and legal issues currently facing the system today."

Luis Omar Guzmán, Business Development Officer, Wells Fargo
"The Camel Project is important to me because society needs to do better. Bullying is a primitive behavior that leads to negative impacts on emotional, physical, and financial health. If not addressed, it can lead to increased vandalism, domestic abuse, mass shootings, suicide, among other problems. We as an evolving species need to create more awareness around the detrimental effects that bullying has on families, workplaces, and individuals of all ages. Today’s advances in technology have created more pervasive incidents of bullying. We need to elevate the dialog and increase the collaborative impact."

William Oxenreider

William "Bill" Oxenreider, Co-Owner of Next Level Integrated Industries
"The Camel Project hits home with me. I have been a victim of bullying myself. We all handle it differently, for me being dyslexict was one of my first exposure to being bullied. I have had the privilege of being bullied, not only by children, but adults and educational institutions too. I have always defended those who have been bullied, be it in school, work or social settings. I have gone through Pams B.E.L.L.Y. program, because I was interested in being a better person. I still have emotional issues from the past. I believe that people have no idea that words can leave an emotional scar without them realizing it. Then there are those who need all the help they can get. Enter the The Camel Project! I still see bullying happening in the workforce and being taught, not only in family structure, but friends and peers. Sadly, even by teachers of education! I believe The Camel Project is proactive and shows steps in creating a solution which can eradicate bullying, rather than treating an incident that allow emotions to continue to fester and allow bad traits to be passed to the next generation."

"The Camel Project is important to me because it shows actual steps on how to stop bullying now. Unlike other programs used in education, it is proactive not reactive, or only informational. As a former educator, I know how important it is to implement programs such as The Camel Project. I challenge school districts, to be honest with themselves and admit that the programs they are currently using are not enough. It is time to utilize a program that helps eliminate that problem and not just check off the "bullying box."

Elaine Swavely, Office Administrator, Shop Steward (Ret.)
"This project is important to me because bullying can leave a mark on a person's psyche for a lifetime. Bullying can lead to health issues, depression and suicide. Between 1 in 4 and 1 in 3 U. S. students are bullied at school. Nearly 43% of kids have been bullied online. 1 in 4 has had it happen more than once. If we can change just one child's life by eliminating bullying in any form, the project will be a huge success and well worth our effort."

Stephanie Warmkessel, Owner at Salon Styles Family Hair Care
"The Camel Project's mission to STOP Bullying is very near and dear to my heart. Over forty years ago, I experienced bullying first hand as a student growing up in our county school system. In today's fast-paced world and increasing technology, bullying behavior has grown tremendously. I am honored to be a part of this organization that wants to eliminate bullying entirely.."
