HARRISBURG, N.C. -- A senior at Hickory Ridge High School worries her college future is in jeopardy, and it's all stemming from a shirt she wore.
On Wednesday, Summer wore a green shirt that rests just off the tops of her shoulders and exposes her collarbone.
She says, while she was eating lunch, the principal approached her in the cafeteria, asking if she had a jacket.
In the suspension notice from Hickory Ridge High School, the principal and Summer apparently had an interaction where the principal told Summer to cover up with a jacket. The report states Summer responded with, "I think my shirt is fine". The principal then told Summer that her lower back was also completely exposed, so she was still not in compliance with dress code. Summer repeats again, "My shirt is fine."
Summer did not have a jacket, but a friend offered to loan her one.
