A Kentucky school district has launched an investigation after scantily clad teenage boys gave lap dances to staff members — including the principal.
Photographs of the so-called “Man Pageant” at Hazard High School created a firestorm on social media.
“The incident is under investigation and as you know any thing under investigation I really can’t talk about,” Supt. Sonda Combs told the Herald-Leader. “Once the investigation is complete, appropriate action will be taken, “ Combs said.

The boys were dressed in skimpy outfits and lingerie while several female students were dressed as Hooters waitresses.
Among those who got a lap dance was Hazard High School Principal Donald “Happy” Mobelini, who is also the town’s mayor.
“It wasn’t meant to be anything sexual. It was just a joke so we could get more laughs so we could win,” senior Legend Goins told television station WYKT.
School board member Aster Sizemore told the Courier-Journal that he was surprised to learn of the incident.
“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.”
Combs apologized for how the event had been portrayed in the media.
“At the end of the day, the light-hearted activity simply got out of hand, and for that, we apologize,” she said. “In the future, we will strive to keep the lighthearted, fun nature of school activities without the inappropriate behavior. We will continue to seek to involve our students and foster their creativity, but with more direction.”
“They are young and we will be there to offer better guidance for their ideas in the future. We love our students and only want to provide them with the best education and foundation for a successful life,” the superintendent continued. “We only ask that not judge a district with a century long tradition of striving for excellence on a single incident where fun trumped judgment.”
In short, it’s unlikely the principal will get a lap dance at next year’s homecoming festivities.
