A Pennsylvania high school senior has been suspended for three days after asking Miss America to prom at an assembly on Thursday.

Nina Davuluri was at Central York (Pa.) High School to speak about the importance of science, technology, and math studies. 18-year-old Patrick Farves used his question to give her a flower and ask if she’d go to prom with him.

Farves was suspended for the stunt. School officials said they were already aware of Farves plan and had warned him not to do it.

But it appears that Miss America is on his side. Although she declined the prom invitation due to scheduling conflicts, Davuluri wrote on the official Miss America Facebook page that she has asked the school to reconsider Farves’ suspension.
