A Pennsylvania high school student has reportedly been suspended after asking Miss America to prom during a school forum.

Miss America Nina Davuluri gave a talk at Central York High School about diversity and the need to cultivate learning in science, technology, engineering and math. During the question and answer session, a student, 18-year-old Patrick Farves, asked Davuluri to prom and approached the stage with a plastic flower.

Farves told USA Today that he received three days of in-school suspension. USA Today reports that school officials had warned Farves not to pull the stunt when they heard about his plans, but he did not listen.
