Teacher gives student his own shoes so he can walk in graduation

BOUETTE, La. - A high school senior in Louisiana was almost banned from walking in his graduation ceremony after he didn’t follow the school’s shoe policy until a teacher stepped in to help — literally.When Daverius Peters arrived at the local convention center for the event on May 19, he was blocked from entering the building. A school representative told him he had violated the ceremony’s dress code shoe policy."I feel targeted, humiliated because they had another kid with the same shoes as me on and he was able to walk the stage," Peters, 18, said.According to the school’s graduation dress code, male students were asked to wear dark dress shoes, with an emphasis that "no athletic shoes" were to be worn at the event.
