CNN’s Brooke Baldwin talks with valedictorian Roy Costner IV about his bold decision to break the rules at graduation.
Roy Costner IV did not tip off any school authorities that he would recite The Lord’s Prayer in his graduation speech, after he learned that he would not be permitted to say the prayer. When it was time for his valedictorian speech at Liberty High School in Liberty, South Carolina, Costner ripped up his speech and recited the Lord’s prayer and casually talked about his Christian upbringing.
The School District of Pickens County, including Liberty High School, has a policy against prayer in school, but no disciplinary action was taken Costner.
The population in Liberty is about 3,000 as of the 2000 census.

Video was recorded by Brian Dismukes.
