Former University of Michigan Student Body President Chris Armstrong of all people knows that “It Gets Better.” During his months of being stalked and harassed by Michigan Assistant Attorney Andrew Shirvell, the university administration and alumni stepped up and supported Armstrong.
Now Armstrong and his parents have decided to offer a scholarship to any prospective University of Michigan student who has been a victim of bullying or adversity. Armstrong says the University of Michigan is “a far better place to be who you are and to express everything you want to express.”
Because of his ordeal, Armstrong has become a national figure of the sort of good, earnest and talented youth targeted by anti-LGBT bullies on a daily basis. His scholarship not only ensures that others will continue to remember his travails but that others will look to him for strength when targeted by closet cases and emotionally insecure cyberbullies with far too much time on their hands.
Whenever you decide to run for President of the World, Chris, you have our vote.
