    ‘Drunken Pirate’ sues school that nixed degree

    MILLERSVILLE, Pa. - A woman denied a teaching degree on the eve of graduation because of a MySpace photo has sued the university.

    Millersville University instead granted Stacy Snyder a degree in English last year after learning of her Web-published picture, which bore the caption “Drunken Pirate.”

    “I dreamed about being a teacher for a long time,” said Snyder, 27, who now works as a nanny.

    The photo, taken at a 2005 Halloween party, shows Snyder wearing a pirate hat while drinking from a plastic “Mr. Goodbar” cup. It was posted on her own MySpace site.

    Although Snyder apologized, she learned the day before graduation that she would not be awarded an education degree or teaching certificate.

    Jane S. Bray, dean of the School of Education, accused Snyder of promoting underage drinking, the suit states.

    The federal lawsuit seeks at least $75,000 in damages. Millersville spokeswoman Janet Kacskos referred questions to a state System of Higher Education spokesman, who declined comment.

    So she did it to herself by having it on HER myspace account and now wants to sue over it. Geez.

    I'm not a myspace fan. But this is stupid. She earned the degree give it to her. I hope she wins!

    I'm not quite sure how a picture of a 25 year old (who has not yet started her teaching career) drinking out of a plastic cup at a holloween party promotes underage drinking.

    Looks like they need some practice at this game.

    WTF.
    That makes no sense!
    I hope she wins the lawsuit, get the monitory compensation, AND gets awarded the degree!
