Wrestler Speaks to Students at Blackville School

(L-R) Blackville students Macaully Gillespie, Jaden Vickers,
Tessa Coughlan and Wrestler Devin Chittick.
Wrestler Devin Chittick visited Blackville School on October 2 to speak to elementary and middle students about the negative effects of bullying and also about the dangers of drugs and alcohol.

Chittick told the students he was adopted at 6 months old because his birth mother suffered from Alzheimer's disease and couldn't take care of him.

His passion in life was wrestling. Chittick wanted to go to wrestling school as a child, but his family couldn't afford it.

When he turned 12 he started getting bullied a lot and the other kids would wrap him up in a towel, throw him on the ground and kick him. When he got into his later teens he turned to alcohol due to the stress of being bullied everyday.

Aside from speaking to students about bullying and the dangers of drugs and alcohol, he is a promoter of Maritime Stars of Wrestling (Mainstream Wrestling Entertainment). For more photos from the event, click here.
