TNT Academy makes headlines again


The Stone Mountain school that made headlines over a principal's racist comments at a recent graduation ceremony made headlines once again.

During a walkout of the graduation, Nancy Gordeauk said, "Look who's leaving, all the black people." Gordeauk was fired for the comments.

"I know she's not a racist person but at the same time she doesn't think before she speaks a lot of things," said former TNT Academy student Jeremy Hinton.

Now a letter sent home by TNT board members and Gordeauk asks former parents and students to write to the Georgia Accrediting Commission, otherwise "your transcripts will not be accepted by any college or university," the letter stated.

Some students we spoke with say the felt the letter was threatening.

TNT Academy had no comment on the letter.
