Officials at Brawley Union High School in Brawley, CA told class of 2014 Salutatorian Brooks Hamby that he was not to reference his personal faith in Christ during his address to his fellow graduates.

The Desert Review reports that he discussed that ordeal during his address instead.

Perhaps the most edifying were the words of Hamby. He spoke on how his speech was denied three times due to references to his personal faith.

He reminded his fellow classmates that people in history raised the bar of mankind when they refused to be compromised when told to live according to inferior standards and denying what you know to be moral, and good, upright and honest.

He quoted Matthew 5:13 without referencing chapter and verse.  He also encouraged students to stand for their values no matter the consequences and then said, “may the God of the Bible bless you each and every one of you.”
