ST. MARTIN, MS (WLOX) -

A group of D'Iberville moms is showing support for a St. Martin student who was punched on a school bus.

The ladies personally delivered a "Happy Basket" to St. Martin High School Monday: a basket filled to the brim with balloons, flowers, cosmetics, a smiley face pillow and movie tickets.

The moms say they were deeply touched by our WLOX story about the St. Martin High freshman who was sucker-punched by another student. They wanted to shower the victim with comfort.

"If she was humiliated and horrified, and wants it to go away, I just want her to know we are here for her and just to put a smile in her face and this tiny little freshman can walk tall again one day," said Shannon Bicket.

The ladies also want to spread an anti-bullying message.

"It's a little humiliating I'm sure," said Denise Hebert. "So it's like this is the after effect, maybe we can lift her up."

The moms are reaching out to other schools, like Biloxi High and St. Patrick Catholic High, to encourage more parents to send cards and gifts to give encouragement to the victim.

    Full-time Waveland city workers, primarily police officers, who take-home vehicles outside of the city limits could see a change to the city's policy soon. City leaders said the current policy is antiquated and needs to be rewritten into something that would benefit both the officers and the taxpayers.
