12-year-olds’ Suicide has Bedford County Schools Taking Action

The Bedford County School District is taking action to stop bullying after a 12-year-old committed suicide. 

Eli Fritchley was a seventh-grader at Cascades Middle School. His parents made the heartbreaking discovery after he took his life in late November. 

According to his parents, Eli was bullied by classmates because for his sexuality.

Bedford County Director of Schools Dr. Tammy Garrett said they have planted trees, handed out “kindness matters” bracelets, and are planning events in Eli’s honor as they look deeper at incorporating bullying into their curriculum.

Next month Kirk Smalley with Stand for the Silent will share his experience of losing his child to bullying with the students.
