No prom for Miss America

Miss America is asking a Pennsylvania school district to reconsider the punishment of a high school senior who asked her to be his prom date during the question-and-answer portion of an assembly.

The York Dispatch newspaper reported Sunday that Nina Davuluri posted a statement on the Miss America Organization's Facebook page saying she contacted Central York High School to ask officials to rethink the three-day in-school suspension issued to 18-year-old Patrick Farves.

Davuluri says her travel schedule will prevent her from attending the dance with Farves.

School officials knew Farves intended to ask her to prom and warned him not to do it. Fellow students cheered afterward, but Farves was suspended for misbehaving.

He apologized for disrupting Thursday's event. Davuluri was there to talk about the importance of science, technology, engineering and math studies.
