Teens Banned From High School Graduation for Wearing Military Sash

AP: Jordan Marker and Joel Hunsicker had long looked forward to their graduation from Schuylkill Valley High School.

But as their classmates received their diplomas Wednesday night, Marker and Hunsicker watched from the bleachers at the high school stadium.

They said school administrators gave them an ultimatum: take off the black and gold sashes their Army recruiters gave them to symbolize their pending service or don’t walk at graduation.

They chose the latter.
