It wasn't your typical high school valedictorian speech and it's not your typical act of defiance. 

Prayer was used instead of a pre-approved speech at Liberty High School, in South Carolina. 

The school's valedictorian, Roy Costner IV, walked up to the podium, ripped up his script and began to recite The Lord's Prayer, word for word, while the crowd applauded and cheered. 

The reason this was an act of defiance and not simply just a spiritual moment, is because the Pickens County School District decided to eliminate all prayer from graduation ceremonies this year.
