An investigation has been opened after the images have surfaced on social media of the school event in Kentucky. The male students partook in a ‘man pageant.”
The male students in the images can be seen wearing scant clothing, women’s lingerie, and they performed a lap dance to the staff.
All students participated in a Man Pageant and Costume day on Tuesday. The images show the students giving lap dances to the staff, and even the principal Donald Mobelini enjoyed the dance. He’s the city major.

The images were removed from the FB page. Superintendent of Hazard Independent School Sonda Combs stated, the district “has a tradition of excellence and academics and everything we do, but the incident is being investigated, and once the investigation is complete, appropriate action will be taken.”
Toni Konz Tatman, Kentucky Department of Education spokeswoman, stated Toni Konz Tatman, Kentucky Department of Education spokeswoman, said the department is “aware of what took place in Hazard Independent Schools” and has “been in contact with the superintendent, who has informed us that the incident is under investigation.”
“Kentucky law provides that school district superintendents are required to report instances of educator misconduct to the Education Professional Standards Board (EPSB). Therefore, if the investigation finds a certified educator likely violated the Kentucky Educator Code of Ethics, the superintendent is required to report this to the EPSB for potential action,” Konz Tatman stated.
“If any citizen of Commonwealth feels that that Kentucky’s educator Code of Ethics was violated by a certified educator, they can also file a complaint with the EPSB,” she continued.
Aster Sizemore, a board member for Hazard Independent Schools, stated that is employed at that high school but didn’t attend the event.
“Normally, the principal, Happy Mobelini, is pretty dad-gum strict, so that surprises me unless someone pulled something out of a hat,” Sizemore said. “A kid comes to school with a short dress, you know, he makes them go home and change.”
