Update: Georgia senior who pulled yearbook prank allowed to walk across stage
Paris Gray, the Georgia high school senior, whose participation in graduation activities was put in limbo because of her yearbook quote, will get to attend graduation. According to a school spokesperson, Gray was never punished, and the idea that she would not get to participate in graduation festivities was a “miscommunication.”
Gray, however, was not disciplined as once thought. Charles White, the coordinator for communications at Clayton County Schools, told News 2 it was all “a miscommunication between the student, her parents and the administration.” White said the matter was resolved Tuesday after a meeting between those involved. “She will be able to give her graduation speech,” added White.
During an interview with WSB-TV, Gray said that the ordeal taught her to “never give up” and to “strive for what [she] wanted and be more careful next time in the future.”
