Unplugged Student

This story caught our attention and we thought it was worth mentioning. A student at Grand Rapids' Union High School was cut off while doing a speech at his graduation cerimony. Nicholas Noel, the president of the Union High senior class, was cut off after describing his school as the "Union High Prison System." Even more humorous was that the rest of his speech included phrases such as calling Union a "foul institution" and a "horribly irresponsible and depraved place to learn these life lessons..."

The article goes on to say that the school staff apparently expected some sort of un-approved speech from this young man. Sounds like he let the cat out of the bag too early. That's the life lesson here: don't tell anyone before hand when you plan to change your speech from the approved one.
