Several locals gathered at the intersection of Highway 55 and Highway 41 to raise suicide awareness and protest bullying.

Keylee Duty, of Manchester, was one of the protesters. A student at Coffee County Central High School, Keylee was Channing Smith’s friend.  

“We came here to show people this shouldn’t be forgotten," Keylee said. "Bullying will be put to a stop. We are trying to make a change. We want to make bullying stop.”
