(ABC NEWS) — A high school valedictorian was abruptly cut off mid-speech by school administrators just as she was about to mention alleged sexual assaults on campus and how the school allegedly failed to take victims’ accounts seriously.

Lulabel Seitz, 17, was silenced during her graduation speech when she says administrators from Petaluma High School realized she was about to talk about alleged assaults — including one against her — and the treatment of victims.

Seitz, who will be attending Stanford University in the fall and double-majoring in applied mathematics and economics, said she wasn’t going to raise the issues — until administrators specifically told to keep it out of her speech.
