Fulton County Public Schools responds to Alpharetta student’s lawsuit

Alpharetta High School

Reuben Lack made national headlines last week when news broke that he was suing his school, Alpharetta High School, over his forced removal as the school's student body president. Lack alleged the change came after he introduced a resolution designed to make the school's prom more gay-inclusive.

Samantha Evans, executive director of communications for Fulton County Public Schools, disputed Lack’s claims in an interview today.

“The bottom line is that this allegation that the student is making is not true. This is not a district that would support any type of prejudice or bias,” Evans said today by phone.
