Jessica Urbina's stylish senior portrait may have been jettisoned from the yearbook at Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory School -- but now it's plastered throughout the blogosphere, making her the school's new, unwitting poster child.
Sacred Heart administrators targeted Urbina for wearing a tux and bow tie, which apparently violates the school's dress code. Female students are expected to wear dresses for their yearbook photos.
Incensed by what they saw as top-down discrimination, Urbina's friends, classmates, and brother Michael launched a protest, arriving to school today in bow ties and publicizing the incident over Twitter.It quickly created a media firestorm. Within hours, the school was censured by everyone from alumni, to Live 105 DJs, to local cab drivers.
