PLYMOUTH, Mass. – Graduates of a Massachusetts high school who received diplomas this month containing spelling errors are getting corrected versions — plus an apology.
The diplomas handed out to 263 Plymouth North graduates on June 4 had the word "for" spelled "fro" while the word "and" was spelled "ans." Schools officials signed all of them without noticing.
Principal Kathleen McSweeney tells The Enterprise of Brockton that Jostens, the Minnesota company that printed the diplomas, sent new ones to the school that arrived Monday.
School officials will sign them and mail them this week.
Jostens also sent a letter of apology, saying the mistake was human error made as the company transferred artwork to a new computer system.
