Valedictorian Uses ‘Hell’ in Graduation Speech Denied Diploma

High school valedictorian denied diploma over graduation speechWho would have thought that the use of the word “hell” could cause so much trouble? An Oklahoma high school valedictorian had did it and she has been denied her diploma.

She had done this way back in May and is still waiting for her diploma. The school simply refused to hand over her diploma. The desperate family has turned to the media for justice.

Kaitlin Nootbaar graduated from Prague High School with a 4.0 grade point average, her father, David Nootbaar, told KFOR-TV. But school administrators told him that Kaitlin would have to submit a written apology in order to get her diploma.

“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,'” David Nootbaar told the network.

“She worked so hard to stay at the top of her class,” he said. “This is not right.”

In her speech—inspired by a similar address in “Eclipse: The Twilight Saga”—Kaitlin recounted how annoying it is to be constantly asked what she wants to do as graduation approached. “How the hell do I know?” she said, according to her father. “I’ve changed my mind so many times.”

In the version she submitted to the school for approval, “hell” was “heck.” But in the version she delivered at graduation, “hell” it was.

The school declined to comment. “This matter is confidential and we cannot publicly say anything about it,” Prague schools Superintendent Rick Martin said in a statement to KFOR.

      this is what’s wrong with America…parents don’t uphold rules for their kids; instead they allow kids to do whatever they want and then fight against the authorities in favor of the wrong-doing kid.
