Valedictorian denied high school diploma for saying hell in speech
A STRAIGHT-A student in the US has reportedly been denied her high school diploma for saying the word "hell" in her valedictory speech.
Kaitlin Nootbaar graduated from Oklahoma’s Prague High School back in May of this year and was named valedictorian. In her graduating speech which was inspired by the film Eclipse: The Twilight Saga, she accidentally said the word "hell" instead of "heck"- a move which her father claims has cost her dearly.
"Her quote was, when she first started school she wanted to be a nurse, then a veterinarian and now that she was getting closer to graduation people would ask her what do you want to do and she said ‘How the h*** do I know? I’ve changed my mind so many times," David Nootbaar told local TV station KFor.
The audience laughed and she was given a round of applause at the end of her speech.
