Who is Chip Pettit, you ask?
He’s the principal at Crown Point High School in Crown Point, Indiana.
Why is Chip Pettit an asshat, you ask?
Take a look.
Crown Point grad Jacob Dalton Stanley, whose name was listed in the graduation program, was turned away when he went to the graduation ceremony Tuesday night at the Star Plaza Theatre in his Marine dress blues. Nor did school officials read his name among the graduates.
Stanley, who graduated in December and joined the U.S. Marines, completed boot camp Friday and flew home for his high school graduation. He practiced with his classmates during the day and was reportedly told by high school Principal Chip Pettit that he would not be able to wear his uniform during commencement.
That’s why Crown Point High School Principal Chip Pettit is an asshat. Of the first magnitude. Thank you for asking.
