Valedictorian Denied Diploma For Saying “Hell” In Speech
There is hell to pay.
Kaitlin Nootbaar graduated her Oklahoma high school as valedictorian, and she’s gearing up to start college on a full scholarship. Yet she still doesn’t have her high school diploma…
During her graduation speech at Prague High School in May, Kaitlin dropped an innocuous H-bomb, and the school wants her to apologize, KFOR-TV reported.
“Her quote was, when she first started school she wanted to be a nurse, then a veterinarian and now that she was getting closer to graduation people would ask her ‘what do you want to do?’” Kaitlin’s father David explained. “And she said, ‘How the hell do I know? I’ve changed my mind so many times.”
The school’s principal says she’ll only receive her diploma if she apologizes, and Nootbaar has no intention of doing so.
