MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The student who was stomped by girls in cell phone video of a fight that happened at White Station High School says bullying led to her being brutally attacked.
WMC Action News 5 brought her concerns about bullying to Shelby County Schools' attention.
says because of the video and media coverage, her voice is finally being heard.
"I talked to doctors and they asked me how my head was feeling. It's like my vision was going in and out," she said.
The student says a clique of girls randomly pick targets to jump and harass.
SCS leaders got together Thursday to address the issues that the ninth grader and her mom say could have been prevented.
The teen says she was ignored for months after reporting bullying to school leaders.
On Thursday, SCS leaders from the student support and safety departments came together to focus on the bullying problem across the district.
They say fight numbers are down and they are working hard to ensure it stays that way.
"Often we will get information from other students that says this is going on and they will go to a counselor or a teacher who they trust and that's what we really try to do with our students," said Randall McPherson, Department of Student Support.
SCS announced a prevention program launching next year that would bring more monitors into the school.
