UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — When Gizelle Studevent first started Penn State Athletes Take Action, even she may not have envisioned the type of impact it would have today on the Centre County community.

Otherwise known as PSATA, the mission of these highly dedicated student-athletes is to educate the youth of Centre County about the dangers of bullying. To reduce bullying behavior, Penn State student-athletes visit local schools and interact with the students.

Studevent, a former Lady Lion basketball player, was terribly bullied when she was in middle school. As a standout athlete, she wanted to combine her athletic career with her passion for anti-bullying. Studevent visited the Centre County Women's Resource Center with a mission to work with middle school kids and bring awareness to bullying prevention.
