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.
It’s been exactly one week since administrators with the Joshua ISD silenced the graduation speech of the class valedictorian, because he made religious references. Now the high schooler has retained the services of a non-profit legal group.
Joshua ISD valedictorian Remington Reimer’s speech was cut short at Thursday night’s ceremony inside Joshua High School’s Owl Stadium. Officials say he didn’t use the speech they approved.
