Utah High Schools Ban Pacific Islander Students From Wearing Leis at Graduation

The Pacific Islander community in Utah has called out some high schools’ decision to bar student from wearing leis or any other ornaments during their graduation ceremonies.

The ban on leis or any other ornaments is the result of some schools in the area that sought a uniform look for the students to limit the distractions or special attention, the Salt Lake Tribune reported via Herald Extra.
