CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A North Carolina high school student, less than three months from earning his high school diploma, won’t see it after dying in his sleep March 19.
His father, Benjamin Moore, said Cochrane Collegiate Academy offered a certificate, but his parents say that's not enough.
“And I think, 'No I know he deserved that high school diploma,'” said Moore's mother, Yvonne Moore. “Phillip didn’t ask to die. He had excellent grades. Never been suspended from school from kindergarten through the 12th grade.”
According to Moore's parents, school officials said he didn't meet the requirements.
