YORK, Pa. (April 19, 2014) York, Pa. high school student Patrick Farves, 18, is in hot water for asking Miss America to prom during a question-and-answer session at the school.
Farves said he received three days of in-school suspension Thursday because he asked Nina Davuluri to prom.
The senior at Central York High School stood up and popped the prom question, and then walked to the stage with a plastic flower.
Davuluri laughed and the students cheered, but school officials weren’t amused.
They heard about Farves' plan in advance and warned him not to do it.
He has since apologized for disrupting the event.
The school says students are disciplined for breaking rules and this incident is no different.
Davuluri was at the school to talk with students about diversity and the importance of science, technology, engineering and math studies.
