Birthplace: The student gave birth at Hoggard High School, a public school that serves 1,902 children between the ages of 14 to 18 years old
Announcement: School spokeswoman Valita Quattlebaum is not allowed to release personal information about the mother due to federal privacy laws
The mother has not been named and her age has not been released, but the public school serves 1,902 children between the ages of 14 to 18 years old.
‘The school nurse assisted and acted heroically helping the student and the baby into the ambulance to go to the hospital,’ Ms Quattlebaum told local news station WECT.
The spokeswoman did not know the baby's gender, and she would not reveal any personal information about the mother due to federal student privacy laws.
