COOK Co. – Some students at Cook High School are outraged after learning they will not be allowed to wear honor cords for non-academic achievements at graduation.

Non-academic achievements, such as clubs and service work, will be recognized with pins. Students say that’s still not enough, and they will continue to fight for their cords.

An online petition has gained more than 630 signatures asking the administration to reconsider their decision.

Cook High School administration says number of cords being presented has diminished the importance of the historic honor cords and stoles. Officials also say they have not received any formal complaints and have only seen those posted on social media, reports WALB.
