In this still image taken from an April 20, 2013 video provided by Tammy Garth, Airman Cassey Widener salutes as his sister, Courtrney Widener, arrives for prom at Liberal High School in Liberal, Kan. Courtney wanted her brother, recently returned from Afghanistan, to escort her to front door of the school, but school officials denied her request stating that at 22, he was too old to participate. The high school principal that barred Airman Cassey Widener from escorting his sister to prom has apologized, saying the intent was not to dishonor him. Deputy Superintendent Paul Larkin said Tuesday, April 30, 2013 that a policy change allowing exceptions to the age restriction will be presented at Monday’s school board meeting.
