A teen is suing her school district, its superintendent and the high school principal.. Eighteen-year-old Kymberly L. Wimberly filed a discrimination lawsuit last week in federal court in Pine Bluff Arkansas
Kymberly who is an African-American recent high school graduate says her high school discriminated against her by refusing to let her be sole valedictorian even though she had the highest grade-point average.
Kymberly graduated in May with all "A's" and one "B" while at McGehee Secondary School, the suit says.
Even though she had the highest Grade Point Average (G.P.A.) in her class she was forced share the title of Valedictorian with a white student.
The lawsuit charges that “Defendants’ actions were part of a pattern and practice of school administrators and personnel treating the African-American students less favorably than Caucasian students.”
According to the lawsuit, African-Americans make up 46% of the 500-plus student body at McGehee Secondary school.
A message left with the office of Superintendent Thomas Gathen, who is black, was not immediately returned Monday evening.
The lawsuit also says that Kymberly Wimberly's mother, Molly Bratton, overheard other school staff talking in the copy room on May 10 that Kymberly’s status as valedictorian might cause a “big mess.” (Kymberly had a baby during her junior year, according to court documents.)
The next day, Principal Darrell Thompson went into Bratton’s office and told her that he had decided to name a white student, who had a lower GPA, as co-valedictorian.
Both students spoke at commencement in May, said Kymberly's attorney, John W. Walker.
Bratton says the superintendent wouldn't allow her to speak to the school board to challenge the decision until graduation had passed.
The lawsuit seeks punitive damages and requests that school records be changed to show Kymberly Wimberly as sole valedictorian.
Kymberly to attend Harding University in Searcy, Ark., in the fall.
