Primary school student's handmade design on outfit inspires viral university t-shirt logo

- An elementary school student was bullied over his homemade University of Tennessee (UT) logo pinned to his t-shirt

- The student being mocked got to the public and also prompted fellow UT fans to rally support for him

- University of Tennessee’s store also sympathised with him and in turn made his drawing into an official design for their T-shirt

It began at Altamonte Elementary School, Florida, celebration of College Colours Day where students were asked to dress to represent their favourite college or university.

According to a class teacher, Laura Snyder, an unnamed student was excited to represent University of Tennessee (UT) but he did not have any official cloth of the college so he got creative and drew a logo of UT on paper and pinned it to an orange t-shirt.

His gesture quickly turned sour among his classmate as according to Synder: “Some girls at the lunch table next to his…had made fun of his sign that he had attached to his shirt. He was devastated."

His teacher later made a Facebook post which later went viral and made its way to sympathetic UT fans and the university which later sent the boy a package full of swag and said it was turning his “U.T.” design into an official T-shirt.

Students and fans of the university donated items for the unnamed students, his classmates and their class teacher.

The university also noted that part of proceeds from every 'U.T.' t-shirt sold will go to an anti-bullying foundation.

Fans desire to have the shirts went so high that it crashed University of Tennessee's online shop on Saturday, September 7.
