Student with banned photo grateful for support

Student with banned photo grateful for support - State -
"A teenage lesbian whose senior picture has been banned from her high school year book because she posed in a tuxedo says she's gratified by the support she's received.

In an interview with The Clarion-Ledger, 17-year-old Ceara Sturgis said people from all over the country 'have told me I'm this hero. They are my heroes.'

Copiah County School District Superintendent Rick Cloption said federal court decisions uphold the district's decision not to publish the photograph.

Sturgis is a student at Wesson Attendance Center. She is a National Honors Society student and is active in school athletics and a number of other extracurricular activities."

I'm definitely keeping you posted on this one as more information comes out. Its a tux for Pete's sake.
