Star of upcoming movie visits Bridgeport Middle School
BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. - Dean Cain visited Bridgeport Middle School on Wednesday in preparation for his upcoming movie, "Zombie Club".
Cain hosted a round table discussion with local students to understand the impact bullying has in West Virginia. The movie is designed to help end bullying, an issue that affects 20 percent of the student population and can impact mental health and lead to substance abuse and suicide.
"It's great to be able to come here and talk to the young folks to find out what the stories like in West Virginia which has got its own bullying issues like literally every community does. Sometimes when you're able to shine a light on it, you help to alleviate the problem", Cain said.
Cain is a reserved police officer involved in a task force to help end bullying. Harrison County Superintendent, Dr. Mark Manchin believes the movie idea could have a big impact in the community.
