Norwin School District has taken unspecified disciplinary action against an unspecified number of students in the wake of a high school homecoming dance which ended with an outside disc jockey posing in a photo holding bras.
In a statement released today about the Sept. 29 dance, school district officials the district "has investigated this matter fully and appropriate disciplinary action was administered to students who behaved inappropriately."
Disc jockey Eric Wenning of Wenning Entertainment said that he was playing the last song of the dance -- "Hit the Road, Jack" by Ray Charles -- and talking with a chaperone about a final announcement that needed to be made when in the last 10 to 20 seconds of the dance some girls started taking off their bras and throwing them over decorative Christmas lights hanging from the ceiling.
He did not know how many girls or bras and said they were not thrown at him.
"I didn't see it until the last minute," he said. "If it had happened in the middle of the dance, I would have shut everything down."
He was so surprised by the episode that he had a staff member take his photo on his phone holding two or three bras with a shocked look on his face. He then posted the photo on his private Facebook page.
School officials asked him to take it down, which he did.
He apologized for his "poor judgment" for taking and posting the photo.
He said his company has done dances in Norwin for several years, but the district's news release said he would not be asked back.
The district's news release said, "Although no video or photographs depicted students engaged in inappropriate behavior, the photo in question was an inappropriate photo of the disc jockey."
