Miss America Asks School Not To Suspend Student For Asking Her To Prom

YORK, Pa. (UPI) — Miss America has spoken up in support of a Pennsylvania high school senior who was suspended for asking her to prom during a school assembly last week.

Patrick Farves was told not to approach the stage during an assembly at Central York High School, but he did it anyway so he could speak to Nina Davuluri.

The 18-year-old got a 3.5-day in-school suspension for his efforts.

Although she didn’t accept the offer, Davuluri did stick up for Farves.

“Yesterday, a student invited me to prom and gave me a flower while I was giving a presentation in York, Pennsylvania,” she said in a statement. “I was flattered by the gesture although I am unfortunately unable to attend due to my travel schedule. I later learned of the disciplinary action taken and reached out to the school in hopes that they will reconsider their decision.”

Unfortunately for the young man, it doesn’t sound like it will matter.

“The student was instructed not to do something,” Michael Wagner, the president of Central York School District’s board of school directors, told the York Dispatch “He chose to do it anyway, and there are consequences. I don’t think it has anything to do with Miss America being offended or not.”

Even though he didn’t get a date, Farves has at least gotten himself some publicity. “I’m still in shock to this moment,” Farves said. “I’m on my way to be flown out to New York to go to the ‘Today’ show.”
