Student who revealed Troy High election-rigging seeks post
FULLERTON – The Troy High School senior who was suspended from school and stripped of his student-government post after he broke into a school database to reveal that a teacher altered election results is seeking to undo some of the discipline imposed on him.
Jacob Bigham, 17, and his parents have asked the Fullerton Joint Union High School District to consider expunging from his record his five-day suspension and reinstating him this fall as student-body vice president, in the wake of a public uproar over the way the district handled the election flap four months ago.
Bigham revealed in April that the candidates whom student-government faculty adviser Jenny Redmond named student-body president and vice president for 2012-13 weren't the top vote-getters. He was immediately suspended for five days, stripped of his current post as student-body secretary and barred from assuming the student-body vice presidency that he'd won for 2012-13. Redmond continued teaching the student-government class for the remainder of the school year.
