NC high school seniors go viral after befriending lonely freshman


REIDSVILLE, NC (WGHP) — Bullying can be a problem in schools, but two Reidsville High School students are doing what they can to meet the problem head-on.

Smoot added, “He was excited because he didn’t have nobody to eat lunch with so we ate lunch with him on that same exact day.”
