When members of the Mansfield School Board met on Monday night, May 20, they commented on the omission of prayer from the graduation ceremony held the Friday night before.
“Why was there no prayer,” questioned Board President Rick Nicodemus. “Our lawyer told us that we cannot include prayer in the program,”
Following last year’s graduation, the group Freedom From Religion threated a lawsuit against the school if they did not drop the practice.
Board members and administrators discussed student lead prayer and resuming baccalaureate services.
