Illinois Valedictorian considers legal action against school
MCDONOUGH COUNTY, Ill. (WRSP) —
West Prairie High School Valedictorian, Sam Blackledge says minutes before commencement, administrators told him to remove parts of his speech mentioning god.
His legal counsel says the school may have thought they were supporting the constitution by excluding faith elements from the speech, that's not the case.
Sam says the superintendent did reach out to him, and they set a date for a meeting to discuss his rights.
