Oklahoma valedictorian denied high school diploma after ‘cursing’ during speech
A high-achieving student from a small Oklahoma town has been denied her high school diploma, allegedly because she used the word “hell” in her valedictorian speech.

Kaitlin Nootbaar, 18, delivered the speech three months ago after graduating from high school in the community of Prague, according to KFOR-TV.

Nootbaar’s father David said she borrowed a line in her speech from one delivered in Eclipse, a movie from the Twilight Saga series.

“Her quote was, ‘When she first started school she wanted to be a nurse, then a veterinarian and now that she was getting closer to graduation, people would ask her, what do you want to do and she said how the hell do I know? I’ve changed my mind so many times,’” David said. (Photo: KFOR-TV)
