Teachers Give 13-Year-Old Girl 'Most Likely to Become a Terrorist' Award

By Mark Pygas

A number of teachers at Anthony Aguirre Junior High in Channelview, Texas, are under fire after they held a mock awards ceremony on Tuesday and named a 13-year-old student "most likely to become a terrorist." 

Lizeth Villanueva, a seventh grader, received a certificate from one teacher, and said that copies of the same certificate were given to several other students while other students and teachers "watched and laughed." 

"They just found it as a joke," Lizeth told KHOU. "She said that some people might get offended, but she doesn’t really care about our feelings, she was laughing about it."
