Sumary of A Teen Called For Masks In School After His Grandma Died Of COVID. Adults Mocked Him:
- His story is poignant and sad, and his concerns are widely held — but when Tennessee teenager Grady Knox stood up at a county school board meeting to explain why he wants masks in schools, adults at the meeting mocked and heckled the high school student.
- “This time last year, my grandmother, who was a former teacher at the Rutherford County school system died of COVID because someone wasn’t wearing a mask,” Knox, who is a junior at Central Magnet School, said at Tuesday night’s board meeting.
- Knox wanted to speak in support of a mask mandate in schools.
- “If they laugh at me about a personal story about my grandmother, that’s just disrespectful, I feel,” Knox told Nashville TV station WSMV.
