Bullied UT Fan in Florida Receives Scholarship Offer

The Florida fourth grade boy, bullied when he wore a homemade University of Tennessee t-shirt to school, now has a full scholarship at UT waiting for him. University officials say they will cover his tuition and fees beginning in the fall of 2028, should he decide to attend UT and meet admission requirements.

 

The story gained worldwide attention when his teacher posted a picture of her student wearing an orange t-shirt with a hand drawn UT logo pinned to it. The Vol Shop is selling the boy’s design and donating all proceeds to the Stomp Out Bullying campaign. So far, more than 50 thousand t-shirts have been sold.
