Teacher gives student his own shoes so he could graduate

LOUISIANA, USA: When a Louisiana high school student , Daverius Peters , nearly couldn’t graduate because the shoes he was wearing violated the school’s graduate dress code, a teacher literally stepped in to make sure that the student would walk for graduation. 

Daverius  arrived at the local convention center in Bouette on May 19th and was told by a school representative that he couldn’t enter the building.

Despite Peters wearing professional attire, the representative told him that his shoes – black leather sneakers with white soles – did not fit the criteria for the school’s dress code for male students: dark dress shoes.

That’s when John Butler, a paraeducator and student mentor at the school, stepped in to help.

Butler’s shoes were two sizes too big for Peters, but the student was reportedly relieved at the gesture.

Thanks to Butler’s kind gesture, Peters was able to walk across the stage and received his diploma.

Stevie Crovetto, Hahnville High School’s director of public information, told FOX Television Stations the school will be reviewing its dress code policies.
