Students at a local school are grieving a classmate. Friends say the young man took his own life because he couldn’t take any more bullying.

They say school officials knew about the torment but didn’t do enough to stop it. But Cheatham County Schools Director Dr. Tim Webb said the school was only aware of one incident of bullying. There was some intervention, but apparently no formal follow up.

Jacob Rogers felt that no one was listening to him or standing up for him. He dropped out of school. Finally he killed himself.

Jacob’s friend Kaelynn wonders how many more have to die before Cheatham County School does something?
