SANDY -- A former Alta High School student has received $100,000 in a settlement related to his claims that he was racially abused by fellow students that included members of white supremacist group.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Anthony Armstrong, a biracial student who went to Alta High School in Sandy, Utah, was called racial slurs and threatened with a noose made out of athletic tape.
Armstrong says some of the students who abused him belonged to a white supremacist group called Rawhide. Armstrong was a student at the high school from 2009-2011.
Canyons School District spokeswoman Jennifer Toomer-Cook told the Tribune that officials moved swiftly and took appropriate action when they learned of the events.
Armstrong's attorney, Andrew Morse, says his client is pleased with the settlement.
