School District Wont Lot Mother Walk Across Stage
LUBBOCK (AP) — When the rest of the graduating class walks across the stage at Hermleigh High, Stephanie Buchanan probably will be checking out videos at the supermarket where she works.
Mtf Buchanan, 17, left school in die small West Texas town of Hermleigh two years ago when she became pregnant. She later returned to complete her requirements a year early with straight A’s.
Now, officials have barred her from Friday’s commencement exercises.
“I’ll probably work that night. At least I won’t have to think about it," Ms. Buchanan said. ‘Tve been depressed. I really was looking forward to walking across the stage."
The school board of the tiny Scurry County district, about 90 miles southeast of Lubbock, voted twice not to let Ms. Buchanan walk across the stage. They cited a district policy that required students to complete four years of high school.
