FAYETTEVILLE, NC - A senior from Jack Britt High School in Fayetteville will not receive his diploma after stripping down to his underwear at his graduation ceremony.

Cumberland County School Superintendent Dr. Frank Till said Thursday that Quinton Murphy would not get his diploma.

Murphy caught everyone by surprise when he stripped down to his underwear at Wednesday’s graduation.

 Just after his name was called he paused on stage and threw off his cap and gown revealing his leopard-print tight underwear. Superintendent Till and other dignitaries were caught on camera with surprised faces.

There are five more graduations for Cumberland County Schools and Till warned students who may have similar prank ideas that there will be “long-term consequences.”
