Justin Denney's family watched on as he ascended the Cumberland County Civic Center stage during graduation Friday night to accept his diploma, but the superintendent told him to return to his seat.
The Bonny Eagle High School senior's mother wants an apology, and her son wants his diploma, News 8's Will Lewis exclusively reported Monday night.
Mary Denney said she can't believe how her son's taking a bow and blowing a kiss on stage led was grounds for the superintendent to withhold his diploma…
So, do you think the school went to far. Yes, they did...in my opinion. I read what it said about showboating. I don't think taking a bow and blowing a kiss to your family is showboating. I guess they need to detail out their definition of showboating. I also think knowing what the rules were...wait until you get the diploma in your hand and then do whatever you are going to do. It is not like they can take it from you at that point or fight for it at least. :-)
