A Georgia teen says fallout over her quote in the yearbook is threatening to ruin her senior year.
Paris Gray is a senior class vice president at Mundy's Mill High School in suburban Atlanta, a member of SADD, the Beta Club, and a leader on campus.
Now, she could be kept from walking at graduation next week.
"I think their reaction was beyond what it should have been because nobody understood it," Gray said.
She received an in-school suspension and was kept from participating in a senior walk last Friday after yearbooks were distrubuted, all due to a quote she left near her portrait.
The message was: "When the going gets tough just remember to Barium, Carbon, Potassium, Thorium, Astatine, Arsenic, Sulfur, Uranium, Phosphorus."
