Former Michigan State basketball player Anthony Ianni visited Re-Ed on Nov 12 to spread his anti-bullying message into Ohio. Mr Ianni drove a big bus across Michigan last year, spreading his anti-bullying message to 659 schools in Michigan in one year. This year he is taking his message out of state.
Mr. Ianni was bullied and harassed over his size growing up and he faced another challenge, being diagnosed with autism at the age of four.
“I’ve overcame those challenges and gone on to great things, just to become the first known basketball player with autism,” Ianni said.
The students were captivated by his presentation and had many questions for him during the Q&A portion. Our thanks to Mr. Ianni for coming to Re-Ed and sharing his experiences. PYD!
