Michigan teen gets last laugh. Homecoming prank rallies entire Michigan community…

High school student Whitney Kropp was shocked earlier this month when she was named to the homecoming court. Seems like a few ‘pranksters’ at Ogemaw Heights High School in West Branch, Michigan thought it would be funny to nominate Whitney…as a joke.  But her community (as well as most of the school’s students) has rallied around Whitney…and tis weekend, Whitney will soon have the last laugh.  Businesses in her community have even stepped up:   A restaurant is picking up the bill for dinner. Whit’s End Salon will do her hair and nails and the Glass slipper will supply the dress. Her mother encouraged her to go to homecoming with her head held high. And that’s  what she intends to do. Whitney said the incident has made her stronger than  she ever believed, and the support has given her a much-needed boost of  self-esteem.   BTW:  The homecoming game is this Friday with the Homecoming  dance on Saturday.   www.detroitnews.com/article/20120924/METRO/209240341/Town-turns-tables-school-prank?odyssey=tab%7Ctopnews%7Ctext%7CFRONTPAGE
