A Northern Kentucky high school student is being withheld his diploma, after bringing up Jesus during his graduation speech. 

Over the weekend, Micah Price decided to tell his classmates that Jesus Christ was the answer, the way, the truth and life. This upset the school administration.

"I was told I wasn't allowed to bring up Christ in my speech," said Micah Price in a TikTok video. "I did anyways."

After the speech was over, Price said one of the principals at Campbell County High School in Alexandria, Kentucky, tapped him on the shoulder and politely told him he would have to go in front of the board and explain why he went off script. 

"I have no bad blood," said Price. "They're doing their job. If anyone is in the wrong, I am. "

In a statement given to Local12 News, Superintendent Shelli Wilson said that all speakers were told that going off their submitted speech, or any unplanned choices at graduation, may have repercussions as they would at any school function.

"While I know, personally, that many of us are proud of this young man's beliefs and are practicing Christians ourselves, the principal has to consider the possibilities of students going off the planned program," said Wilson.

Price says he will never step back when it comes to his faith. 

"I am here to push the kingdom of Christ. I don't fear high school. I fear God. I do what he tells me to do," said Price. "The message I will continue to speak until the day I die is that you guys, see the power Christ has allowed me to use and given me. He can do that for you too. He really can. " 

Although Price believed he would need to meet with the school board, he will now meet with just the principal. After that meeting, he will receive his diploma.
