Brian Sherry started this petition to Blue Mountain High School and

For years, Blue Mountain School District in Schuylkill Haven, PA has allowed military bound students to wear military sashes representing their respective military branches during graduation. However, this year, the school district has announced they will not allow students to wear these sashes. When asked about the sashes, school administrators shot down any counter-arguments and would not listen to any criticism- essentially preventing the students to exercise their freedom of speech and expression.

This decision by Blue Mountain school district is not only offensive to the affected students, but also offensive to current and former military members. Not to mention, this decision came just a few days after Memorial Day. Frankly, this decision makes students feel that their school is not proud that they are sacrificing time and potentially their lives to protect this nation.

The goal of this petition is to force Blue Mountain to recognize the sacrifices of their military bound students and allow them to be honored during the commencement ceremony.
