For one high school student, asking his dream girl to prom definitely didn’t turn out as expected.
18-year-old Patrick Farves was suspended when he took the initiative to win over Miss America during a Q&A segment at his high school.
Nina Davuluri was at Central York High School to talk about diversity and the importance science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and apparently, the school’s administrators heard about the student’s plan, pulled him aside before Miss America’s appearance, and he still went through with it.
He received three days of suspension. According to DailyMail, Farves had this to say:
“They (administrators) did that because they told me not to but I did it anyway,’ Farves responded on Twitter to a question from a reporter. ‘They did what they had to.”
“At that point in time, it was 10 minutes before the presentation, and I was pretty much set to do it,’ he said. ‘I was a little pressured. Everybody expected me to do it. I’m the kind of person who, if someone says I won’t do something, I’ll prove people wrong. I will.”
The school has not backed down one bit either:
“It is not our practice to discipline a student for asking someone — even Miss America — to a school dance,’ the statement from the Central York School District reads in part. However, it is our practice to set expectations for student behavior, to communicate those expectations and rules to students and families and to ensure those rules are followed within our schools. This practice is not uncommon and happens every day, multiple times a day, in schools, businesses and homes across America.”
Hey, the heart wants what the heart wants!
