H.S. Student Barred From Wearing Military Sash at Graduation

June 3, 2016

Trevor Fuller recently committed to a six-year stint in the Marine Corps, which provided him with a red sash to wear at his high school graduation in Pennsylvania if he so desired. Fuller and two of his classmates were game, but Middletown Area High School prohibited them from wearing the sashes during the May 26 commencement ceremony. The dress code stated that "only school-issued regalia is worn at commencement," but now the school district says it will purchase red, white and blue sashes for future grads who have committed to military service.
