Teen Injured By Bully, Responds In Unexpected Way

On September 14, fifteen-year-old Hannah Combs was snuck up on by another student and had super glue poured on her head. She immediately went to the school nurse.

She said, “It instantly started burning. It felt like my head was on fire. It was horrible. I realized I lost my favorite thing about me. I loved my hair. My hair was the only thing I liked about myself, honestly. I lost it for no reason.”

The attacker was only given an in-school suspension. Combs father, Christian Grimmer, threatened to call 911 if school officials didn't take action. Grimmer said, “You would think the superintendent’s priority would be school safety, but it is not any of his concern because he will not return any calls.” The school district then released this official statement:

“Killeen ISD is committed to ensure the safety of all students, staff and parents. Therefore, the district considers this a very serious incident and has responded in accordance to state law, board policy and the student code of conduct. In doing so, the district also protects the rights provided to students under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act and thus is unable to provide information pertaining to specific students and disciplinary measures instituted.”

The Combs's wanted the bully transferred to another school. So, they kept Combs from school for over a week. The school finally called them on Sept. 22 to tell them that “the issue had been resolved” and that Combs could return. After that, her mother created a Facebook page called Justice For Hannah.

The page has received over 32,000 likes and growing. In a recent post, Hannah wrote, “Let’s let him start over; he should know now that he needs to respect other people and think before he does something…It’s the bully that really needs the help.”
