No, you didn’t misread that, a student was actually kicked out of a high school dance for wearing a kilt. Lauren Keith writes about Nathan Warmack for KFVS Channel 12 (CBS). Warmack is a student at Jackson High School (Missouri).
Nathan Warmack says he just wanted to show pride for his Scottish heritage. So he wore a kilt to the “Silver Arrow” dance last Saturday at Jackson High School.
But when he got there, the principal said the kilt was a distraction and told him to change.
Nathan says he’s researched his family genealogy and even saved up his own money to buy this kilt.
Having seen what passes as “fashion” among many of today’s high school students, I have to say a kilt seems tame in comparison.
