Pregnant student, banned from graduation, walks anyway

Montgomery, Ala. – A pregnant student who was banned from graduation at her Roman Catholic high school announced her own name and walked across the stage anyway at the close of the program.

Alysha Cosby’s decision prompted cheers and applause Tuesday from many of her fellow seniors at St. Jude Educational Institute.

But her mother and aunt were escorted out of the church by police after Cosby headed back to her seat.

Here’s the kicker:

The father of Cosby’s child, also a senior at the school, was allowed to participate in graduation.
