The Harlem Globetrotters Bullying Prevention program came to Tampa's Pizzo Elementary School.

The ABCs of Bullying Prevention program is coordinated with the National Campaign to Stop Violence to help reduce bullying in schools.

Hammer Harrison of the Harlem Globetrotters showed off some of his ball handling skills while talking to students about taking Action, being Brave, and having Compassion.

Vice Principal Angela Fullwood says the students are able to see a variety of people expressing the same message about bullying.

"Outsiders coming in and supporting anti-bullying as other people in the community, singers, movie-stars, but just seeing a different aspect not just coming from teachers and parents and the school sector, but outside venues as well," says Fullwood.

Harrison and the rest of the Harlem Globetrotters will be coming to the USF Sun Dome in March.
