INDIANAPOLIS – A second guidance counselor at an Indiana Catholic school has been told she will lose her job because she is in a same-sex marriage.

A lawyer for Lynn Starkey, co-director of guidance at Roncalli High School, says school officials told her that her contract will not be renewed for the 2019-2020 school year. 

"Starkey’s 39 years of exemplary employment, including teacher of the year recognition in 2009, will end because she is in a same-sex marriage and because she filed discrimination complaints," attorney Kathleen DeLaney said Monday in an emailed statement.

Delaney said she will amend a discrimination charge Starkey filed in November with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to include the fact that Starkey is losing her job.
