Honor Student Gets Scholarship Taken Away After ‘Twerking’ At Homecoming Party
An honor student at a Louisiana high school just had a scholarship endorsement taken away after video of her “twerking” at a homecoming after-party was shared online.
According to a report, 17-year-old senior Kaylee Timonet had her scholarship taken away and was removed as student government association president because of a video posted by a DJ at a private party Timonet was attending.
The video, which has since been deleted from social media, had shown Timonet dancing at a homecoming party with friends. The DJ who had posted the video said he felt that the dancing was not bad, and it was just kids having fun. Timonet’s mother was also in attendance at the dance, and says she felt that the dancing was not worthy of stripping these accolades from her daughter.
Apparently, school officials felt otherwise and called Timonet into the office to discuss the video. You can get the full report in the video below from WAFB.
The local community is gathering in support of Timonet and are actually selling shirts with slogans in favor of her dancing. The family is still working on things with the school and officials.
The situation has also stirred up other questions on social media. Should educators be allowed to punish students based on things that happened outside of school grounds? The same really goes for employers.
