Woman denied degree over MySpace photo sues

first_imgMILLERSVILLE, 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. 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. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
