TRINITY, NC -

A North Carolina high school student had her senior picture banned from her school's yearbook after she posed with her baby son.

According to Fox8 WGHP, last summer Wheatmore High School invited seniors to include a prop in their senior photo that "represents and achievement."

Caitlin Tiller, 17, chose to take her senior photo with her son Leelin.  Tiller told Fox8 that she found out her picture was being pulled from the yearbook two days before they were being printed.

Randolph County School officials would not comment to Fox8 on why the picture was pulled, except to say "the yearbook should be all about the student not an extension of their family."
