The newly formed girls leadership group at Tug Valley High School in Mingo County, who call themselves GLOW (Girls Leading Our World), wanted to address bullying and depression at their school and decided to lead a Mix It Up at Lunch Day. From planning, to implementation, and debriefing--these girls are leaders.   The girls were congratulated by the principal over the intercom the next day and their fellow students kept asking what GLOW was up to next!
