Chelsey Ramer is a high school senior at Escambia Academy High School in Alabama. She is also a proud member of the Poarch Creek Band of Indians. To celebrate her Native American heritage, she wore an eagle feather on her motorboard at graduation - pretty awesome! But the Escambia Academy school board would have none of it.
They fined Chelsey $1,000 and withheld her diploma and transcripts until she pays the fine. This is outrageous. We demand that the school board apologize to Chelsey Ramer, and drop this discriminatory $1,000 charge.
