BPCC says no to hazing

BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

With the death of 26-year-old Robert Champion fresh on the minds of many, some schools in the ArkLaTex are cracking down on the age old tradition of hazing. Champion was the drum major for Florida A&M until he died suddenly, after a suspected botched hazing.

Bossier Parish Community College demands every student athlete sign and abide by their anti-bullying/anti-hazing policy. The rule takes a strict stand against practices of paddling, slapping, beating, branding, burning, any activity that causes extreme fatigue, verbal harassment and public embarrassment.

"Our coach is real big on it. We don't have anybody picking on anybody. I think that's why we're a real drama free team right now,"said BPCC Softball player Chelsea Ivy.

"Anyone that tries to break that down, it won't be tolerated, and their time here will be short," said Head BPCC Softball Coach Ashley Grisham. "It can be detrimental to a kid's self-esteem and self-worth. I don't see any good in any sort of hazing."

KSLA News 12 made a few calls to other campuses in the area. LSUS and Centenary college both have similar anti-hazing policies in place.
