(PCM) Here we see yet another case of a school district taking things a little too far! When 18-year old high school student Patrick Farves asked Miss America Nina Davuluri to the prom, we are sure he never expected it to result in a three day in-school suspension.
Davuluri was making an appearance at Central York High School to speak with students about diversity and the importance of science, technology, engineering and math studies.
During a question and answer session with Davuluri, Farves, who is a senior, stood up and asked Davuluri is she would accompany him to the senior prom, before proceeding to walk up to the stage with a plastic flower. Davuluri giggled and the student body cheered for Farves.
School officials say that they did have advance warning that Farves was planning on popping the prom question to Davuluri and warned him ahead of time not to do it and that there would be consequences. Farves has since apologized for disrupting the school event.
Does anyone else think that a three day in-school suspension seems a bit harsh in this situation? I think the whole thing is adorable and what teen boy wouldn’t jump at the chance to ask Miss America to the prom?
