Hi all. I would like to hear some opinions on a subject that has recently happened in my hometown.
A high school senior was fatally shot close to one month before graduation. At the time of his death, he was maintaining a "C" average. When the final grades were calculated and averaged, the student did not meet the requirements for graduation in two classes because of his death. The parents of the deceased student asked the school district to award a graduation diploma. The school board countered with an honorary diploma for which the parents refused.
