MANCHESTER, Tenn. (WTVF) — A new mural in Manchester is honoring a student at Coffee County High School who died by suicide.
Channing Smith’s family says he took his own life after he was outed on social media. He confided in a few that he was bisexual, but after texting with another teen, some of his classmates posted screenshots online.
An anti-bullying project is honoring Smith with a mural in Manchester, located right off Interstate 24 at exit 110. The final product will include the number of the National Suicide Prevention Hotline.
