North Carolina Valedictorian’s Speech Stunned And Overwhelmed Crowd [VIDEO]

Roy Costner IV wrote a speech for his graduation, from Liberty High School,submitted it to the school for approval and was prepared to read it to the crowd on Saturday afternoon. He tore it up instead. The South Carolina valedictorian stunned everyone when he tore up his prepared words and recited the Lord’s Prayer instead. “I’m so glad that both of my parents led me to the Lord at a young age,” he said before starting the prayer, his words quickly drowned out by the crowd’s cheers.

Costner was reportedly protesting the school district’s decision not to include prayers at this year’s graduation ceremonies; a district spokesman said Costner wouldn’t face disciplinary action. “We’re not going to punish students for expressing their religious faiths.”
