Miss America Nina Davuluri has pleaded with a high school in Pennsylvania to reconsider their decision of suspending a student, who asked her to go to the prom with him.
The 25-year-old made the appeal on the Miss America Organisation's Facebook page Saturday, writing that she was "flattered" when Patrick Farves, 18, gave her a flower and asked her to go the prom with him during a presentation she was giving at Central York High School on Thursday, ABC News reported.

Davuluri also mentioned that due to her travel schedule, she couldn't actually attend the prom, but added that she encourages young people to "follow their dreams" and is inspired by their "enthusiasm and aspirations."
Farves' stunt got him suspended after he ignored school officials' advance warnings of not to pull the stunt.
