A South Carolina valedictorian garnered wild applause after he ripped up his pre-approved speech and delivered the Lord's prayer at his high school graduation on Saturday.
The act was apparently in protest of the Pickens County School District's decision to no longer include prayer at graduation ceremonies, Christian News reported. Officials said the decision was made after the district was barraged with complaints by atheist groups.
