Savana Lee Redding was thirteen when she was strip searched at school. But she didn’t let the school get away with it. With the help of the ACLU, she took her case to the U.S. Supreme Court, arguing that her Fourth Amendment rights had been violated.
And her courage made a difference.
The Court found that her rights were violated, setting a precedent that has helped protect other students from such humiliation.
Mary Beth was thrilled to get to catch up with her old friend Savana and her family on Sunday in Mesa, Arizona! What an inspiration she is!
