The president of Wheaton College in Norton is criticizing a female student for wearing blackface as part of a Halloween costume.  President Dennis Hanno says the student choosing to wear a racist and offensive Halloween costume raises difficult issues.  The student is on the soccer team, and Hanno has banned the squad from playing in a tournament game this weekend over the incident.  The cancellation of the game ends the team's season. A student conduct hearing process is expected.
