Diploma Dilemma: Lawmakers offer help for honoring a deceased teen


State lawmakers said Friday they're open to discussing an honorary diploma for a Manchester teen who died before he could see his high school graduation.

The Krapfl family said Travis was set to graduate from West Delaware High School this month, but the 17-year-old died last September.

State Representative Walt Rogers said he discussed the possibility of an honorary diploma with Art Staed on a radio program Friday.

Rogers said he hopes the West Delaware School District can work something out with the Krapfl family, but said area lawmakers are willing to learn more about the situation and what they can do to help.
