A senior at Truman High School in Missouri will not be allowed to walk in his graduation because of a prank he pulled. Kylan Scheele, 18, admits to posting an ad on Craigslist on Friday that listed Truman High School for sale; he said it was meant to be a joke.
The ad listed several amenities including the school’s newly built athletic fields, plenty of parking and a “bigger than normal dining room.” The Independence School District took issue with Kylan’s reason for the sale, which he wrote was “due to the loss of students coming up.”
On Wednesday, Sheele, who told FOX4 that he was notified that he was suspended for the remainder of the school year and would not walk in Saturday’s graduation.
“A three-day suspension, sure, but denying me the ability to walk, that’s a lifetime moment,” Sheele said. “I think they’re overreacting.”
