Pennsylvania's Central York High School has suspended Patrick Farves for three days for asking Miss America to prom during her visit to the school. He popped the question with a plastic flower during a Q&A session. Miss America Nina Davuluri laughed as students cheered. School officials warned Farves not to carry out his stunt.
Nina Facebooked: "I was flattered by the gesture, although I am unfortunately unable to attend due to my travel schedule. I later learned of the disciplinary action taken and reached out to the school in hopes that they will reconsider their decision.''
The school says: "It is not our practice to discipline a student for asking someone - even Miss America - to a school dance. However, it is our practice to set expectations for student behavior, to communicate those expectations and rules to students and families and to ensure those rules are followed within our schools."
