Vt. High School Grad Says Speech Censored

Ad Feedback

The valedictorian of a Vermont high school claims his graduation speech was censored by school officials.
Fair Haven Union High School valedictorian Kyle Gearwar wanted to talk about how Jesus and the Bible changed his life, but he told the audience that he was allowed to deliver only half his speech.
"This was the message God gave me, and I'm not allowed to share it with you," he said, holding up the pages of his speech before the audience.

The school's principal Brett Blanchar disputes that claim, saying Gearwar was allowed to mention God and Jesus in the uncensored part of his speech.
However, he told the Burlington Free Press that public schools have to be careful about letting religion be preached at a school-sanctioned event.
