Jordan Davis Receives Honorary HS Diploma
You might recall the tragic story of 17 year-old Jordan Davis.
Last November, Jordan was in a car with his friends. Annoyed with the loud music they were playing, 45 year-old Michael Dunn approached the car. After words were exchanged, Dunn pulled out a gun and fired several shots into the car, killing Jordan.
Jordan’s death drew many comparisons to the death of Trayvon Martin, and his family is currently seeking justice for the death of their child.
In the meantime, Jordan’s high school has awarded his family an honorary diploma.
As a senior at Samuel W. Wolfson High School in Jacksonville, Florida, Davis was set to graduate with his classmates this week. Unfortunately, that will never happen. According to Jet magazine, Jordan’s parents, Ronald Davis and Lucia McBath, were presented with an honorary high school diploma, along with two other families of students who died that year. The commencement ceremony, as well as the distribution of the honorary degrees to the late students, was held at the University of North Florida.
According to Clutch, Dunn has been indicted on first degree murder charges, and will stand trial this fall.
