Haywood High School principal Dorothy Bond resigned after the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sent a letter to the school district's superintendent over anti-gay comments she allegedly made at a school assembly.

Bond allegedly told gay students they were "not on God's path" and threatened to expel them if they were caught showing public affection for same-sex students.

Haywood County's school board made this statement through its law firm: "The Haywood County Board of Education acknowledges its student body’s right to free speech. Further, the Haywood County Board of Education strives to provide an atmosphere of tolerance and diversity while maintaining high academic standards."
