Mississippi State student Taylor Corley will be able to remain on the school’s cheerleading squad despite appearing in Playboy magazine.
Corley, who is a freshman, posed for pictures under the name Taylor Stone before enrolling at the school.
The images were published this November and she was identified this week, which led to questions about whether she would be removed from the cheerleading team.
Mississippi State vice president of student affairs Dr. Bill Kibler released the following statement:
“If she had identified herself as an MSU Cheerleader or used any of our marks, then the university might have pursued action. However, she was not identified as an MSU student or a cheerleader. The university did not pursue any action when this came to our attention last fall.”
