Kentucky High School Student Punished For Praising Jesus At Graduation

A Kentucky high school student was punished by administration for praising Jesus too much during his graduation speech. 18-year-old Micah Price says he was told to submit his written speech to the school for approval before graduation. Upon submission, Micah was told to remove his speech’s “overly religious” parts. He sent eight different versions before finally settling for one that was acceptable. However, Micah went off the script when he approached the mic on his graduation day. This action caused the Campbell County high school to withhold his degree for five days.

It is unclear if this specific number of days was determined to be an appropriate punishment or if Micah ultimately received the degree because the story became national headline news. This news comes on the heels of Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker receiving a ton of praise and criticism for his very religious commencement speech at Benedictine College, a Catholic school.
