Caitlin Tiller's senior photo has been banned from her high school yearbook.
The hardworking teenager graduated early in December and now works 30 hours a week while taking college classes. Her photo won't be in Wheatmore High School's 2012-2013 yearbook, however, because it includes her greatest motivation: her 1-year-old son, Leelin.

Last summer, each senior student posed for yearbook photos with a prop of their choosing that represents them. While some students posed with sports equipment, pets or musical instruments, Tiller held her infant son in her arms.
