Whitney Kropp is a 16-year old student at
Ogemaw Heights High School in Michigan.
After Whitney Kropp was voted in as a sophomore representative for the school’s upcoming homecoming dance, some classmates told she was nominated as a prank.
It may seem like a small thing, perhaps. But to be made fun of like that is not funny.
So people did something about it. A Facebook page was created called "Support Whitney Kropp". A former graduate made a YouTube video in support of her. Others said they would pay for her dress, buy her dinner and pay to get her hair done for homecoming.
Ms. Kropp said she was upset, but now she’s excited about going to the dance.
Her mother, Bernice Kropp, said:
"This was something that was really awful, could have ended awful, and because so many people came together, it just turned right around."
