I wish I could have seen the look on my good friend Joe Soto’s from V103 WVAZ FM Chicago. He is such a fan of leopard skinned drawls, I think this young man is a fan as well. Boy would I love to see the faces of the faculty when Quinton Murphy of Jack Britt High School did this. Well his stunt cost him his diploma, school officials state he will not receive it but can verify his completion through his transcripts. Check out the video and the story as reported by WGHP Fox 8:
NC high school senior who stripped at graduation won’t receive diploma
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — A senior at Jack Britt High School in Fayetteville who stripped to his underwear after walking across the stage at graduation on Wednesday will not receive his diploma, Superintendent Frank Till Jr. told the Fayetteville Observer on Thursday.
According to the paper, Quinton Murphy was walking across the stage when he turned toward the audience, pulled his robe over his head and posed with his arms out in the air. He was only wearing leopard-print briefs, socks and shoes when he took off his robe.
School officials were not amused, the paper reported.
“Our schools have worked so hard,” Till said. “It used to be that the audience would be disruptive at graduation. We’ve worked hard to get the audiences to respect our students. This young man chose not to show respect for his colleagues.”
Till recommended to Principal Denise Garison that the school withhold Murphy’s diploma and bar him from the school’s property and events, such as football games. Principal Garison agreed.
Murphy is still a graduate and can prove it with transcripts.
