VIA| 15-year-old Hannah Combs had just begun her freshman year of high school at Harker Heights High and she was hanging outside, talking to her friends. Suddenly a young man came up behind her and poured super glue all over her scalp for absolutely no reason.
Hannah suffered first-degree burns, yet the attacker only received an in-school suspension. Imagine having to be in a class with someone that assaulted you like that! Needless to say, Hannah’s family isn’t happy about the situation at all but who can blame them?
Considering plenty of young men and women have been bullied to the point of either almost committing suicide or actually going through with it, the fact that a school would readmit a student after something like this is almost unbelievable.
Hannah’s father Christian couldn’t agree more, insisting that the bully should have to transfer to another school.
“I’m not going to pull my daughter out and uproot her from her life because of what this kid did to her,” he told KDH News. “That child did this to her, uproot his life. He gave up the opportunity to go to Harker Heights when he committed this act.”
While the school is still looking into the situation, Hannah has handled it with more grace than it deserved. Instead of freaking out about needing to cut off the glue-covered hair, she has now embraced her new look. We think her new hairdo looks awesome too!
