An investigation has started after a Kentucky high school’s page posted photos of students giving teachers and the principal, who is also the mayor of their town lap dances during a homecoming week.
The photos caught national attention when a Twitter user shared them from Hazard High School’s own Facebook page, which has since taken the pictures down.
The Superintendent of Schools, Susan Combs has launched an investigation after the photos went viral.
The incident is under investigation and as you know anything under investigation I really can’t talk about,’
Combs told the Louisville Courier-Journal.
‘Once the investigation is complete, appropriate action will be taken.’
The school Facebook page promoted the event as part of homecoming week.
Combs declined to say whether the ‘Man Pageant’ has been an annual event. Kentucky Department of Education spokeswoman Toni Konz Tatman said they are ‘aware of what took place in Hazard Independent Schools’ and have ‘been in contact with the superintendent, who has informed us that the incident is under investigation.
Aster Sizemore, a member of Hazard Independent School Board, said he was at the school this week Tuesday, October 26, but not at the event where the questionable activity occurred.’Normally, the principal, Happy Mobelini, is pretty dad-gum strict, so that surprises me, unless someone pulled something out of a hat,’ Sizemore said, the Louisville Courier Journal reported. ‘A kid comes to school with a short dress, you know, he makes them go home and change.’
