JOSHUA, Texas (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — A North Texas school district has apologized to a high-school valedictorian whose microphone was switched off during a graduation ceremony when he deviated from prepared remarks.

After the incident, Remington Reimer retained the services of a non-profit legal group to prevent what potential damage to his reputation and possible retaliation by the school district.

Now, Joshua School District Superintendent Fran Marek has apologized to Reimer after meeting with him and his attorney Thursday. In a statement, Marek says she wishes Reimer “success for all future endeavors.”

Reimer’s microphone was switched off during the June 6 ceremony after he deviated from prepared remarks and began talking about his religious beliefs.

He also alleged that his principal threatened to contact the U.S. Naval Academy, where Reimer has been accepted, to complain about his bad character. But Marek said “the district has never intended to, nor will take, punitive action.”

Reimer says he’s thankful and knew the school district would support him.
