Vulgar Bellingham High Ceremony Shocks Mom

Vulgar Bellingham High Ceremony Shocks Mom

A mother is in shock after a Bellingham High School awards ceremony turns into a sexually explicit, vulgarity filled evening.

The mother went to her high school student’s drama club awards ceremony with a younger sibling.

She says within minutes of getting there, the “F” word was used on stage.

Several other obscenities followed along with a joke about a priest wanting to have sex with children.

That’s when the mother left.

Another family member went to the ceremony and says he witnessed more of the inappropriate conduct.

Drama Club Advisor Teri Grimes issued a statement…

“I deeply apologize for some very inappropriate comments and actions made during our drama students’ end-of-the-year awards ceremony. This is not representative of our students who take such great pride in their school and respect one another. Much of the evening was a great celebration of their work. However, as a teacher and the club’s leader, I take full responsibility and am extremely sorry.”

A school district spokesperson says they’re investigating the incident and this not at all typical for Bellingham schools.

The principal and superintendent refused to be interviewed for this story.

The mother also isn’t willing to be interviewed and asked that we not mention her name or the name of her children.
