Changes were made at a local school district after a student complained for not being allowed to thank God in her commencement speech.
Moriah Bridges graduated from Beaver Area High School in June.
She submitted her speech and two days before the ceremony, she claims the superintendent told her it was illegal to offer a prayer in a school setting and she had to take it out.
First Liberty, a religious freedom group, intervened and told the school Bridges' First Amendment rights were being violated.
