A Kentucky school says prayer will not be a part of its graduation ceremony this year.
Lincoln County High School Principal Tim Godbey told The Advocate-Messenger that six students objected to prayers being said at the commencement ceremony.
One of those students says he's an atheist and he doesn't believe religion should be forced on him.
Senior Class President Jonathan Hardwick is speaking out against the ban.
He says that while the school may not sanction it, officials can't stop him from praying.
