The New York Jets, STOMP Out Bullying and Municipal Credit Union have named 1st grader Aubrey C. of Woodmont Elementary School in Montville, NJ, this week's Jets Upstander of the Week.
Returning for 2018, the New York Jets will continue their anti-bullying school initiative called "Jets Upstander of the Week." For each of the 16 weeks during the season, the Jets will ask schools to submit a photo and description of a student that is an Upstander. The Jets will highlight one Upstander a week across their social media platforms and on the video boards during home games.
"We are proud and pleased to present Aubrey as our Jets Upstander of the Week for week 5," said School Counselor Douglas Stech. "Aubrey is a first grader who consistently offers help, encouragement and cheer to her peers when they need it. She has been particularly kind in showing caring and patience to peers who may at times feel isolated or unsure when they need help."
Through the organization's collaboration with STOMP Out Bullying, along with support from Municipal Credit Union, the Jets have provided educator prevention toolkits to over 1,250 schools in the tri-state area at no cost, conducted an annual Jets Tackle Bullying Symposium, created awareness through a robust PSA campaign and annually host an anti-bullying awareness day at MetLife Stadium on game day.
