Kaitlin Nootbaar graduated from Prague High School, the Red Devils, in May and was named valedictorian. When tasked with writing the graduation speech, her dad said she got her inspiration from the movie “Eclipse: The Twilight Saga.”This was a valedictory speech, given by a girl who had straight As and 4.0s all the way through school. She is supposed to start college in a few days on a full scholarship. The school is withholding her diploma until she issues a public apology for using the word "hell" in public.
“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.’”
He said in the written script she gave to the school she wrote “heck,” but in the moment she said “hell” instead.
Nootbaar said the audience laughed, she finished her speech to warm applause and didn’t know there was a problem.
