graduation is about the graduates, not him or his prison tactics....he has to do something to put the light on himself doesn't he??

You can not with hold a persons diploma for celebrating the one of the greatest time of their lives. When I graduated from high school my class did the whole beach ball and bubbles. We were told not to and we still did. It's kind of a last minute senior prank along with the excitement of being out of high school. Also they are sitting there through hours of people talking. In all they are ferric in touch with their kid side. Congrats class of 2012.

Wow, a plethora of misspellings in these comments. Great to know correct spelling is not a requirement to graduate in Moffat County. But hey, let them graduate and of course a rowdy celebration is always in order even if you can’t use punctuation properly.

To myopinion1: Yes they can take away from you what you have earned if you don't follow the rules.
For instance.
If you paid for a house, and don't pay your property taxes, they will take your house away from you.
If you earn a drivers license, and break the law enough times, they will take your drivers license away from you.
The entire world is built around rules and laws. Teens graduating from high school need to understand that now, not learn it the hard way later.
