This picture of a Wheatmore High School senior holding her son has been banned from the school yearbook. Last summer, the school invited seniors to include a prop in their senior picture that represents an achievement or something that best represents them. Students say the invitation did not include rules or requirements.
Students chose everything from baseballs, band instruments to family pets. Caitlin Tiller chose her son, Leelin.
In April, just two days before the yearbook was to be printed, Tiller says school staff told her the picture was being pulled because it promoted teen pregnancy. Tiller says she believes the picture promotes responsibility and love.
“He has helped me achieve my goal to graduate high school and go forward with my dreams,” she said.
Randolph County School officials would not comment on exactly why the picture was pulled, except to say the yearbook should be all about the student not an extension of their family.
