    School officials are withholding a 17-year-old boy's diploma for wearing a bolo tie under his graduation gown.
    Thomas Benya said he prefers the string bolo ties over traditional knotted ties to reflect his American Indian heritage.

    But officials from Maurice J. McDonough High School in suburban Washington said they warned him beforehand that a bolo violated the dress code for the event, held Wednesday for about 250 students.

    :waitasec: I believe in being respectful to a schools regulations, but I'm a little puzzled why they would not consider a bolo tie a tie, see the key word in the description is tie ... bolo ... tie
