A mother was arrested for cheering too loudly during her daughter's high school graduation. Police warned the crowd not to cheer during each individual diploma presentation, but Shannon Cooper said she had worked too hard to be quiet.
It's graduation season across western New York, and Cooper's story, from Florence, South Carolina, could serve as a cautionary tale. Every school sets its own rules for how the audience is expected to behave; some allow cheering, while others request silence until the entire class has been announced.
