Don’t Say ****, Might Cost You A Diploma
So I’m sitting in an auto body waiting room where there’s nothing to do but sift through magazines that are 6 months old, or watch the news that’s up on the TV. Some town in Oklahoma made national news today for something that seems so “really?”
A girl named Kaitlyn Nootbaar, who was valedictorian was making her speech about the future to her fellow graduates when she decided to work in a scene from one of the Twilight movies. Specifically, she said,
When I started school I wanted to be a nurse, then a veterinarian and now that I was getting closer to graduation, people would ask me, what do you want to do? How the h*** do I know? I’ve changed my mind so many times.
The audience ended up laughing and applauded her speech, so the next step is to get her diploma right? Wrong.
This past week when she went to her high school to receive her diploma, she was asked to leave. When she returned with her dad, David Nootbaar said this happened,
We went to the office and asked for the diploma and the principal said ‘Your diploma is right here but you’re not getting it. Close the door we have a problem’.
Wow. I guess even a straight A student can’t get away with anything.
Don’t you think the principal acted a little too harsh?
