Chuck Shriner HS Dipoloma Taken Away Because He Tebowed At Graduation
Chuck is the oldest looking 17 year I have ever seen.
He must have Oden blood, with that being said this is pretty stupid. Graduation is a time for celebration and if the kid wants to Tebow or doing a cartwheel who cares, the journey is over he is some community college problem now.
During the graduation ceremony at Bishop Verot, a Catholic high school located in Fort Myers, Fla., senior Chuck Shriner struck the pose, made famous by New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow last season when he was with the Broncos, as he crossed the stage and approached the school’s principal. Despite the laughter and applause from those in attendance, Shriner’s diploma was withheld from him and was imposed the punishment of having to clean the school’s gymnasium, the location of the graduation ceremony.
Shriner had no idea his little joke — which he admitted he did on a dare and for $5 (although insisting he would have done it regardless of the paltry financial compensation) — would cause such a stir. And such a punishment, saying, “”I just thought it was fun” and adding, “I was just doing it to make graduation memorable.”
Good for Shriner who I believe is really 32 years old, not 17.
No matter what he does in life going forward, he can Google his name and this story will come up. Better to have a little legacy than no legacy at all.
