Barred From Graduation

High School Valedictorian Barred From Graduation For Facial Hair Finds Ally In NAACP

A high school valedictorian was barred from his graduation ceremony in Louisiana last week. The reason? The honor student was denied the opportunity to participate in the graduation events because he refused to shave his goatee, reports the Toronto Sun. Monday, a rally was held in support of Andrew Jones, a 4.0 student at Amite High east of Baton Rouge.
