WATCH: Valedictorian Calls Out School Staff In Her Speech
I believe we call this shade! Good for her!
A high school valedictorian in San Diego has gone viral for her controversial graduation speech.
Nataly Buhr used the speech to slam staff at San Ysidro High School accusing: office staff of nearly making her lose out of scholarship money, counselors not making time for her and a teacher who was often drunk in class.
The speech started like an other Valedictory address as Nataly thanked her parents, friends and a few teachers for inspiring her. The thank yous soon turned sarcastic - thanking school employees who taught her valuable lessons by not doing their jobs.
"Your negligence to inform me of several scholarships until the day before they were due potentially caused me to miss out on thousands of dollars.
To my counselor, thanks for teaching me to fend for myself. You were always unavailable to my parents and I, despite appointments.
And as for the drunk teacher Buhr thanked that person "for using yourself as an example to teach students about the dangers of alcoholism."
The speech was shared on Facebook:
Apparently all speeches need to be pre-approved by school staff, and a school district spokesman told the San Diego Union-Tribune that what Buhr said wasn't in the pre-approved speech she'd submitted before graduation.
