Cheese Chisholm of the Harlem Globetrotters talks to children about bullying.

Cheese Chisholm of the Harlem Globetrotters paid a visit to the Salvation Army’s Boys and Girls Club in Beaumont on Monday, Jan. 21, to talk to the children about bullying.

“I’m from the Bronx, N.Y., and I never had a chance for anyone to come to my neighborhood and talk to me,” Chisholm said. “So anytime I have a chance to talk to kids, I try to do the best I can.”

The visit was part of a new nationwide community outreach program by the Globetrotters in an effort to impact schools and communities.
