Compromise Reached For Gay Student’s Scholarship At Iowa Catholic School

After 18-year-old Keaton Fuller was awarded a $40,000 Matthew Shepard Scholarship from the Iowa-based Eychaner Foundation, his school, Prince of Peace Catholic School, decided not to allow the foundation to present the award at graduation. According to a new agreement, the Diocesan Superintendent of Schools will present the award and read a script prepared by the Eychaner Foundation. Fuller has said he’s relieved a solution was found that won’t “overwhelm my classmates’ significant accomplishments and the joy we all feel in graduating.”
