Black Teenage Mother Not Permitted to Be Sole Valedictorian

You would think a school would be thrilled if a black teenage mother got the highest GPA, that they’d have tears of pride streaming down their faces as they watched her get the prize– despite all that was stacked against her. But apparently not.

An African-American teenage mother, Kymberly Wimberley, earned the highest GPA in her class at Arkansas’ McGehee School District.

But a lawsuit filed by the student this month alleges that her district discriminated against her and made her share the honor with a white student – because she was a black teenage mother.
