An Oklahoma valedictorian is still waiting for her high school diploma, which is being held from her after her graduation speech reportedly caused some controversy in May.
Kaitlin Nootbar, who earned straight As throughout her high school career and is headed to college on a full scholarship, said the word “hell” during her speech, according to KFOR.com .

Nootbar was reportedly referring to not knowing what to do as graduation approached and the inspiration for the speech came from “Eclipse: The Twilight Saga.”
The valedictorian submitted a written script to the school with the word “heck,” but she said “hell” instead, according to the article.
When she went to pick up her diploma last week, the article said the principal told her she would not get it until she wrote an apology.
The principal told KFOR.com he could not publicly say anything about the matter because it is confidential.
Nootbar reportedly does not think she did anything wrong and has no plans to write an apology. Read more.
