OGENAW COUNTY, MI (CNN) - 'Tis the season for homecoming games and dances -- but one bullied teen got a bit of a surprise.
Students nominated 16 year old Whitney Kropp for Homecoming Court as a joke, but she ended up winning. News of the prank spread quickly throughout the community. The whole town banned together to make the sophomore's homecoming a night to remember.
Donations started pouring in ... from hair, to make up, even a dress and shoes to wear to the dance. Despite being a victim of bullying, Whitney wanted to make sure the entire class didn't take the fall, so she posted a video on YouTube.
"People have a saying, the class of 2015 is a bad class. I want you guys to know that the class of 2015 is not a bad class."
Whitney's mom said the overwhelming support has helped make a bad situation right. The district is aware of the allegations. The superintendent says they will not tolerate any form of bullying.
