NC high school apologizes for kicking senior out of prom for wearing pants
CHERRYVILLE, N.C. — Two weeks after a Cherryville High School senior was kicked out of prom for wearing red pants, the school’s principal is apologizing.
According to WBTV, the principal recently called a meeting to apologize and to refund the money of the prom ticked.
Shafer Rupard was kicked out of her own prom for showing up at the Cherryville Golf & Country Club wearing pants.
“The teacher tapped me on the shoulder and said she had a problem with what I was wearing,” Rupard told WBTV. “I thought it was because of the hat or the leather jacket and I was like well I’ll take those off and she was like ‘No, it’s the pants.”
Rupard said the apology “means a lot” but would haven meant more if they had let her stay at prom.
“That’s my senior prom. I can’t get that back.”
Rupard says she still hasn’t received an apology from the teacher who kicked her out of prom.
After looking at the school code of conduct and the prom invitation, Rupard’s mother said she could not find a dress code for the prom.
