This Michigan sophomore beamed as she faced the bullies who voted her onto the homecoming court as a sick joke. After initially planning to skip the celebrations, Whitney Kropp, 16, bravely walked out onto the field during Ogemaw Heights High School’s homecoming football game to accept the honor, and more than 1,000 people showed up to support her.
Whitney was initially thrilled to learn that she had been elected to the homecoming court of her sophomore class. But her triumph turned to humiliation when she found out from other students that her nomination was nothing but a prank by the popular kids at the school – and she was told that the male student who was elected with her had withdrawn.
However, in an impressive show of support, her community rallied around her. Local businesses offered to pay for her homecoming dress and shoes, an appointment at a hair salon, and even a homecoming dance dinner. A Support Whitney Facebook page has received more than 100,000 likes after her heartbreaking tale of bullying resonated with hundreds of thousands around the country.(Link)
