Evan Young of Longmont, Colorado was banned from making his valedictorian speech at his own graduation from Twin Peaks Charter Academy High School. He submitted a draft of the speech to administrators and then provided them a revised speech where he made all the changes they asked for but one. He had planned to come out as gay during the speech but the school would not permit him to include any references to his sexual orientation. The principal then called Young's parents about the issue, outing him without his consent in the process.

Ultimately, Young was not allowed to speak at his graduation. He did get the chance to deliver his speech after all at a fundraising event for Out Boulder, a Colorado LGBT advocacy group and on national television on The Nightly Show.

The class of 2012 at North Penn High School celebrated their graduation with a little more than the usual Pomp and Circumstance: student band String Theory performed a medley of twelve pop songs, one from each year they were in school. If you don't recognize each one right away, you will when the audience joins in.

This teacher does some really cool stuff with science but you should probably bring some eye protection to class.
