NORTH TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WKBW) — There is a show of support for two high school students who came to the aid of a classmate after a bullying incident.

Simon Griskonis and Anthony Swan stepped in after spotting a group of girls that were bullying another girl on a football field at North Tonawanda High School last week.

A local woman was touched by their story, so she started a GoFundMe to help them pay for college.

“I know that this act of kindness and compassion deserves attention, and I really wanted to take matters into my own hands and raise money for these wonderful boys who stood up for a complete stranger and did what they thought was right,” says Kenna Kubicki.
