Fourth-Grader Was Bullied for His Homemade College T-Shirt, So the School Made It Official Merch

By

Alamonte Elementary School in Florida held its College Colors Day recently, where students are encouraged to wear gear from their favorite college or university. A fourth grade teacher at the school, Laura Snyder, took to Facebook to tell the story of one of her students who didn't own any official merch from his favorite college, UT (University of Tennessee). 

A week before College Colors Day, she discussed with this student that he could wear an orange shirt in support of his favorite school. "When the day finally arrived," Laura wrote, "he was SO EXCITED to show me his shirt. I was impressed that he took it one step further to make his own label." He had drawn out "UT" on a piece of paper and attached it to his orange shirt. Innovative, right?!
