Sloan-Hendrix School District Board: reinvite Bryant Huddleston to speak at the high school graduation and consider firing Superindendent Mitch Walton

Superintendent Mitch Walton rescinded an invitation to speak at Sloan-Hendrix High's graduation ceremony based on the sole fact that the speaker, Bryant Huddleston, is gay. Huddleston, class of 1990, is the former student council president at Sloan-Hendrix, a successful television writer and producer, and his sister is one of this year's graduates. In other words, the ideal graduation speaker. Superintendent Walton's bigoted actions are unacceptable and embarrassing to all Arkansans.
