Fake scholarship prank draws laughs, scolding

It turns out a Pennsylvania high school graduate's scholarship was just a load of bull.

Bangor Area High School grad Ethan Rosenberry says he invented an award when the guidance office passed around forms to seniors to report any awards they had received. His made-up award was named for Jack Hitte (middle initial: S).

Rosenberry tells The Express-Times of Easton that he wanted acknowledgment that he'd won jack, er, squat.

Rosenberry says the school's administration wasn't too pleased when the award's name was read aloud by the principal. But he still got his diploma after a stern talking-to.

The district says it's looking into the prank but declined further comment.

Rosenberry is headed to Slippery Rock University in the fall to study political science.
