I'm saying in your example of school, it absolutely would. If you had a suspension on your record, you're probably out of the running for Valedictorian or other Student Leadership awards. Look no further than the HOF selection process in baseball. Players were eliminated based on their use of steroids. Some would/should have qualified based on their results before their reported use (Bonds/Clemens) and others haven't made it seems just because they played in that era and there are some suspicions of cheating (Bagwell).

Like I said you can debate the relative merits or "justness" of it, but it almost assuredly will be playing a role in the decision making process...People just don't put these sorts of things out of their minds (whether they tell you they do or not).
