A very brave high school student in Pennsyvania was suspended this week for asking Miss America to his senior prom.
Patrick Farves stood up in front of his entire school and asked the current Miss America Nina Davuluri to the annual end of the year high school dance Thursday night.
But Patrick’s courageous stunt earned the Central York High School senior a three-day suspension for “deliberately defying” school administrators’ requests that he not pop the question after they learned that he was going to ask the stunning beauty queen out on a date.
“At that point in time, it was 10 minutes before the presentation, and I was pretty much set to do it,” he told the York Dispatch. “I was a little pressured. Everybody expected me to do it. I’m the kind of person who, if someone says I won’t do something, I’ll prove people wrong. I will.”
I don’t know about you but I don’t believe this kid should be punished, he should be applauded for having the balls to stand up in front of a packed auditorium and ask out Miss America. Administrators at Central York High School should be ashamed of themselves, the kid is destined for success with that kind of “Chutzpah.”
