School security guard has coloring book adopted by Bridgeport BOE

A school security guard-turned-author was honored Saturday in Bridgeport.



Sen. Richard Blumenthal and Mayor Joe Ganim honored Harry Bell Saturday, whose coloring book "Color a Positive Thought" was officially adopted by the Bridgeport Board of Education.



In a ceremony at City Hall, Interim School Superintendent Fran Rabinowitz said the coloring book will be used to teach thousands of urban students to have pride in themselves and the communities they come from.



Bell said his book was inspired by his childhood in the Trumbull Gardens housing project.



State Rep. John Shaban also honored Bell, calling him "a role model for young Americans everywhere."
