A Kentucky school district is investigating after a teenage boy gave lap dances to his high school principal and other staff members during a homecoming event.
Other provocative photos of spirit events at Hazard High School posted on social media showed teen girls parading around the gym dressed as Hooters waitresses and boys being paddled, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.
Hazard Independent Superintendent Sondra Combs told the paper Wednesday that the incidents are under investigation.
The most eyebrow-raising pics show a teen dancing seductively near Donald “Happy” Mobelini, who is both principal of Hazard High School and the city’s mayor.
The administrator is standing with a big grin on his face, while the boy — clad in a black dress — bends over in front of him, photos show. The same teen is also pictured with the dress pulled down below his stomach, as he danced shirtless for other adults in a gym.
“The incident is under investigation and as you know anything under investigation I really can’t talk about,” Combs reportedly said. “Once the investigation is complete, appropriate action will be taken.”
The reported pictures had all been deleted from the Hazard High School Athletics Facebook page by Wednesday night.
“Public education is under so much fire right now. This kind of stuff is not helpful. In fact, it’s disgusting. It appears they are sexualizing young adults,” Nema Brewer, a co-founder of the public education group Ky. 120 United, told the paper.
Mobelini has twice been investigated for alcohol incidents involving students, according to the report. In one incident, photos surfaced of him driving kids around as they drank and smoked, the article said.
