Jared Marcum, the eighth grade Logan, West Virginia student who was suspended and arrested after refusing to change his NRA t-shirt at school, was met by several supporters Monday morning outside of Logan Middle School.
Jared returned to class, fresh off of suspension, wearing the same exact shirt that initiated the “t-shirt control” controversy in the first place.
“There’s a lot of people wearing this same exact shirt, showing great, great support and I really appreciate it,” Jared said just before walking into school.
Jared’s father, Allen Lardieri, says getting Jared back into school was his first priority.
