Reversal will allow Keene student to participate in graduation
Lily McGartland, 18, of Keene didn’t take the traditional diploma track, according to her friend Kay Perkins, but deserves to participate in the ceremony nonetheless.
The change.org petition garnered nearly 1,000 signatures.
Wednesday night the Keene School Board heard from McGartland and Perkins and voted to reverse the previous ruling of high school administrators that McGartland not be issued a cap and gown and be prohibited from participating in the ceremony.
McGartland has been an active member of the high school and is a member of the student council. She earned her GED last year and has earned college credits studying abroad through Franklin Pierce University, where her father is a professor. She plans to attend St. Michael’s College in Vermont.
