School officials say reports they denied a Pisgah High student the chance to start a secular group are completely false. The story has gone viral with an article published in the Huffington Post.

Reports allege Kalei Wilson wanted to start an atheist club for teens and got nothing but resistance.

The school's attorney says the entire story is a fabricated lie.

"The school system officially denied this club being formed that is not true. There was never any attempt by any administrators to stop the formation of the club or impede the club  they were following the normal procedure involved," said Pat Smathers.

Smathers feels the story was manufactured by secular groups involved.

Kalei also created a fundraising page online at School officials say that is not allowed for a club. The site now states "that due to numerous threats and verbal attacks on Kalei, she will return any funds and not start the club."

School officials say have investigated and have found no evidence of any bullying or harassment to any student at Pisgah High.
