Reverse Order Brings Reverse the Trend to Elmwood
On Friday, December 4th, 8:30 a.m., students and staff at Elmwood-Murdock School in Elmwood, NE, will be treated to a one of a kind rock concert with a meaningful message. Reverse the Trend is a motivational and anti-bullying movement that is sweeping the country. Students, staff and parents rave about the program that went to 264 schools in 33 states last year, exclaiming: it inspired students, decreased bullying and even saved some lives.
"Reverse the Trend" is a program that combines a concert with an assembly, engaging and exciting the students with music they will enjoy, while teaching them how to overcome bullying. Reverse Order, a popular rock band, continues the assembly by sharing their own personal stories about how they were bullied and how they overcame it in a safe and positive way. They inspire students to set goals and achieve their dreams.
Reverse Order was a semi-finalist on America's Got Talent; the band was recently sent by the US Embassy to Russia as cultural diplomats to bring American music to their youth. The band has shared the stage with artists like Third Eye Blind, The Backstreet Boys and Avril Lavigne. They've released 3 EP's and several singles which can be found on iTunes, Pandora and Spotify.
Reverse the Trend is a 501c3 non profit organization the band started to inspire youth and prevent bullying related suicides. To learn more about Reverse the Trend and Reverse Order here are links to their websites:
