Grads Not Prohibited From Displaying Military Sashes

Written by on June 4, 2019

Cody High School’s graduation was Saturday, and rumors began swirling shortly afterwards that high school administrators were less than supportive of some of the graduate’s decisions to serve in the military after high school.

However, principal Jeremiah Johnston says they are very proud of their students’ decisions to serve their country post-graduation.

A social media post on Facebook had reported that three seniors were not allowed to wear their military sashes to graduation, signifying their decision to join the armed forces. The post also indicated that the students were threatened by the administration that they would not receive their diplomas should they show up wearing the sashes.

But Johnston says that report was not correct.

Johnston says the decision to handle the military sash situation in this way was made in cooperation with the student’s parents. He clarified that there was only one student who approached him about wearing a military sash to graduation.
