I love this story…
An elementary school teacher in Florida posted that her school was having a college colors day. One of her students told her he wanted to wear a University of Tennessee tee but didn’t have one. They discussed that he could wear an orange shirt to show his spirit. He told her every day leading up to it that he had an orange shirt that he was going to wear. So when the day finally arrived, he was SO EXCITED to show the teacher his shirt.
He took it to the next level and drew a design and taped it to his tee. He was so proud of his tee but, after lunch, the teacher noticed he was crying. He said some girls at the lunch table next to his made fun of his homemade tee.
The teacher wanted to get the student his own Vols tee and posted her story to see if anyone had connections to the University of Tennessee.
Well…. word got back to UTenn and they went above and beyond! They sent him a whole pack of Vols gear — tees, bracelets, water bottles, foam fingers, and more!
They even converted the student’s design into a tee and are donating a portion of the proceeds to the STOMP Out Bullying campaign.
(The shirt is at www.utvolshop.com — search for SKU #09216 — but the web site is getting a LOT of traffic and might be down or really slow.)
