A fourth-grader who was bullied for his awesomely DIY University of Tennessee T-shirt can now call himself an artist after the university store made his drawing into an official design.

At Altamonte Elementary School in Florida, students were able to dress to represent their favorite college or university on College Colors Day. One student didn’t have a University of Tennessee shirt, but he wanted to show his spirit. So instead, he wore a hand-drawn “U.T.” sign on a plain orange T-shirt.

He was bullied for the homemade shirt—but then something inspiring happened.

The student’s teacher, Laura Snyder, shared the story on Facebook.

“When I told my students about this day a week before, this particular child came to me and told me that he wanted to wear a University of Tennessee shirt, but he didn’t have one. We discussed that he could wear an orange shirt to show his spirit. He told me 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 me his shirt,” Snyder wrote in the post, which has over 6.7k reactions and 8.3k shares.

“Some girls at the lunch table next to his (who didn’t even participate in college colors day) had made fun of his sign that he had attached to his shirt,” she continued.

“He was DEVASTATED. I know kids can be cruel, I am aware that it’s not the fanciest sign, BUT this kid used the resources he had available to him to participate in a spirit day.”

Snyder added that she wanted to buy her student an official UT shirt and asked if any of her Facebook friends had connections to the school to help her “make it a little extra special for him.”

Well, the University of Tennessee heard about the situation and decided to step in. In a press conference, UT associate athletics director Jimmy Delaney said that a “Volunteer Proud Pack” with donations was heading to the boy.

“As a marketing and fan experience guy, I love the creativity that he showed there and it got back to us, ” Delaney said.

But the story doesn’t end there.

The university announced Friday that the student’s hand-drawn design was being made in to an official T-shirt. A portion of the proceeds will go to an anti-bullying foundation, STOMP Out Bullying.

So many people wanted the shirt that it caused the website to crash.

The University of Tennessee definitely made a lifelong fan here, but let’s hope that this boy also gets some scholarship money from his creation!
