Teen's Yearbook Photo Banned Because Of Flower
A New Hampshire teen's yearbook photo has been rejected, because she's holding a flower.
You see Merrimack High School student Melissa Morin's senior photograph features her holding a small red flower. But school officials say the picture is not going to make it in the yearbook because props aren't allowed.
The 'no props' policy stemmed from a 2005 controversy when a student posed with his gun.
The photographer Brett Mallard is just as surprised as the girl: "I totally understand that schools have right to dictate policy. I think the issue is people need to be made aware that we've thrown common sense out the window. When we're restricting kids from holding a stupid flower in their hand, it's kind of silly, quite frankly."
In the photo, 17-year-old Morin is seen sitting on a costume trunk backstage at the Palace Theatre in Manchester since she loves to act. She's wearing a black and white sundress and holding a red flower.
Morin says she sees flowers in the background or students leaning against trees in other yearbook photos. She's wondering if those are props, too.
