She was already in attendance that day, preparing to walk the stage and become an official High School Graduate when she found out just before the ceremony that she wouldn’t be able to walk with her classmates.
“I didn’t think it would be that big of a deal, because we’re already here, we’re already fixing to walk but now I can’t go because of a dress code,” Clark told ABC NEWS.
