JUPITER, FL--(Marketwired - Jan 17, 2014) - GelTech Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: GLTC) (OTCQB: GLTC), creators of FireIce, a revolutionary water enhancing fire suppressant that has the potential to change current firefighting techniques, announces that GelTech Solutions is helping the community by participating in the successful launch of the Duncan B. Watson Middle School's anti-bullying campaign.
The "Shut the Door on Bullying" campaign, which was launched on January 15, 2014, and created by Assistant Principal Mary Raiford of Duncan B. Watson Middle School, aims to combat bullying in the community and school through building respect, acceptance and voice through education. The day's activities provided educators, parents and students with the tools, knowledge and support to be pro-active in confronting and stopping bullying to make a positive difference in their school. The students participated in an essay contest and designed t-shirts with prizes donated by GelTech Solutions.
Palm Beach Garden's Fire Rescue's personnel were on hand to show their commitment and provide positive reinforcement with the children. "It is the goal of Watson B. Duncan Middle, GelTech Solutions, and the participating firefighters, to continue developing the best learning environment possible, while building students' character and imparting an understanding of how one person's actions affect others," said Kate Wynn, Watson B. Duncan Middle School Literary and Fine Arts Academy Coordinator.
Peter Cordani, president and chief technology officer, stated, "GelTech Solutions was very pleased to be able to help give back to our students and our local school. This is only the beginning. We plan to make a more prevalent impact by utilizing our strong relationships by recruiting Fire Rescue Units from many different communities and growing this from a local to statewide and ultimately a national program. Bullying is such a widespread problem and this campaign helps kids and their teachers with positive tools to prevent it."
