Hunter Suggitt and Rachael Breann
Texarkana Pink Out Day

Did the school take the dress code rules too far? Its What Do You Think Wednesday and we want to hear from you. Call us this morning during the show and voice your opinion at 870-773-9590 or on our Facebook page.

Here is a brief summary of what happened last week that caused Hunter Suggitt to be sent home from school. Komen Texarkana asked everyone to wear pink on Friday, October 12 to show your support for breast cancer awareness. According to Komen Texarkana, Pink Out Day events were planned for each of the four main high schools in Texarkana. Arkansas High officials announced the Pink Out Day over the PA system on Thursday afternoon and asked students to wear pink on Friday.

Hunter is a 16 year old sophomore at Arkansas High. Hunter lost his mom to cancer in 2008 so it was a given that he would deck out in pink on Friday in honor of his mom. He wore pink socks, a pink shirt, pink scarf and a pink bandana on his head. School officials asked him to remove the bandana from his head or he would be sent home. He refused and left.

Here is the school policy:
