Miss America asks York school to rethink prom question suspension
YORK — Miss America is asking a Pennsylvania school district to reconsider the punishment of a high school student who asked her to the prom during an assembly about the importance of science, technology, engineering and math studies.
The York Dispatch reported Sunday that Nina Davuluri posted a statement on the Miss America Organization's Facebook site saying she contacted Central York High School to ask it to reconsider the three days of in-school suspension issued to 18-year-old Patrick Farves.
Davuluri says her travel schedule will prevent her from attending the dance with the high school senior.
School officials had learned ahead of time about Farves' stunt and warned him not to do it.
He's apologized for disrupting the Thursday event.
