Relatives who cheer graduates fined $500, face criminal charges


According to a June 3 New York Times article, Mississippi supporters who cheered inappropriately were charged and fined for criminal conduct.

At Borah’s May 29 graduation ceremony, the principal asked the audience to refrain from using noisemakers because he said they interfere with the audience’s ability to hear students’ names after the noisemakers go off.

Although I thought this was a reasonable request, I wasn’t aware that it was a national issue.  How did your high school graduation go this year?
