OMAHA, Neb. -- A woman contends she was expelled from Grace University in Omaha a semester before her graduation because she is a lesbian.
Danielle Powell, 24, said Tuesday she enrolled in the fundamentalist Christian university in 2007 but was expelled last year after school authorities learned she had a relationship with a female student.
Although Powell has moved on, marrying a different woman, she is still caught in a dispute with Grace officials over financial aid. She says the university has denied release of her transcripts, preventing her enrollment in another university.
