A kid who was bullied for wearing a homemade University of Tennessee T-shirt is getting the last laugh: his unique design will be featured on official school merch this fall. BuzzFeed reports that the university was made aware of the shirt after Laura Snyder, a fourth grade teacher at Altamonte Elementary School in Florida, shared a picture of the shirt on Facebook--and explained that the boy who made it was bullied by classmates. Snyder explains in the post that the young UT Volunteers fan was "SO EXCITED" to show her his shirt, but returned to her classroom in tears after being bullied for his DIY design. In a press conference on Thursday, UT associate athletics director Jimmy Delaney said the school's official store was sending a "Volunteer Proud Pack" with donations from across campus departments to the boy. The school also announced that an official T-shirt featuring the fourth grader’s hand-drawn design was available for pre-order, with a portion of the proceeds going to an anti-bullying foundation. On Saturday, the campus store tweeted that overwhelming demand for the shirts caused their servers to temporarily crash. The UT shirts should be delivered to fans later this month.
