KENOWA HILLS (WKZO) -- A West Michigan school official’s angry reaction to a Senior Prank may have turned out to be a bad Career Move. A group of 64-seniors at Kenowa Hills High School decided that rather than destructive pranks, they would stage a bike parade to school on their last day.
They even arranged for a police escort, and asked to have the Mayor on hand. They were greeted by Principal Katie Pennington who suspended them on the spot and sent them home, threatening to bar some from graduation ceremonies.
At a board meeting last night, furious parents thought she overreacted. And the President of the School Board, Frank Hammond, who’s son was among the biker riders, also thought she overreacted.
The school board decided to suspend all punishments, let the students who missed final exams make them up, and there will be no one barred from graduation. Pennington did not attend last night’s meeting.
