ATMORE, Ala. (WPMI-TV) – An Escambia Academy High School student said she was denied a diploma and fined $1,000 for wearing an eagle feather at her graduation.

For 17-year-old Chelsey Ramer, graduating on May 23 was supposed to be a joyous occasion.

“I was excited,” said Ramer.

It has been more than a week, and she still does not have her diploma. She said it is all because of her feather.
