Poll Context: A Marine was barred from walking at her graduation for wearing her uniform instead of a cap and gown at a high school in Chicago.
Students said Megan Howerton, who graduated from McHenry High School West Campus on Thursday, wasn’t allowed to walk during the school’s graduation ceremony because of a dress code issue, according to NBC 4.
She was wearing her dress blues when school officials refused to let her participate in the ceremony. The Chicago school district is now under fire for their decision to not let the marine walk with several angry individuals taking to social media to voice their frustrations prompting the hashtag #LetMeganWalk.
