Firefly Fisher from the Harlem Globetrotters paid a visit to sixth graders at R. K. Smith Middle School in Luling.

The Globetrotters organization gives back to the community in many ways, one of which is through the Bullying Prevention Program.

Firefly spoke with the students about the importance of displaying the traits of action, bravery and compassion in an effort to put an end to bullying in our schools.

He then went on to coach some students with a few of the Globetrotters famous moves and taught Jasmine Smith how to spin a basketball on one finger.
