    Greenwich school club aims to halt bullying

    GREENWICH, Conn. — A student club established to end bullying at Greenwich High School says it already has more than 300 members just a few days after a student committed suicide in a reported bullying case. Blake Sherwyn, a senior, says school officials are failing to confront bullying as a reason for the death of 15-year-old Bart Palosz, who died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound Tuesday at his family’s home. The Greenwich Time reported that Kim Eves, the district’s spokeswoman, said a police investigation continues and school officials are not permitted to provide details. Sherwyn and other students established GHS Connections, a club they hope will provide a haven for students who are bullied. Elias Frank, vice president of the senior class, told fellow students that because of Palosz’s death, he believes he failed the school and his classmates. (AP)
