As most of you know, I love a happy ending. Awhile back I posted about a high school girl who had been voted onto her high school’s homecoming court but found out it had all been a big prank and bullying tactic. She got the last laugh when the town–and even the people from the opposing crowd rallied around and supported her. Below are some snippets of an article which is linked or attached about nher big night at the Homecoming Game.
Orange T-shirts — Kropp’s favorite color — have been sold with the slogan “It’s not cool to be cruel.”
“It’s just so much right now for me,” Kropp said Friday night. “I had thoughts about not coming but I actually changed my mind and came out. I just thought maybe I won’t have fun. But I’m having a lot of fun right now.”
Her gown, jewelry, shoes, hair styling and makeup were donated.
“The kids that are bullying, do not let them bring you down,” Kropp told reporters. “Stand up for what you believe in, and go with your heart and go with your gut. That’s what I did, and look at me now. I’m just as happy as can be.”
Many in the stands, even students from visiting Cadillac, wore orange, as did Kropp.
