School rejects yearbook comments

HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Three western Kentucky high school seniors have begun circulating a petition in an effort to get their quotes published in the yearbook.

The Kentucky New Era ( reports that seniors at Hopkinsville High School were asked to submit quotes, but administrators rejected those chosen by 18-year-olds Marlee Simms, Brooklyn Fosberg and Rachel Summers.

Fosberg says the quotes were rejected because they deal with sexual orientation.

Christian County Public Schools said in a statement that the quotes submitted "didn’t meet guidelines" for the publication. The statement says the district and the school have rules against discrimination and that there’s no indication that proper procedures weren’t followed.
