Students to get replacement for misprinted diploma jackets
UPI News Service, 06/06/2013
Officials at an Ohio high school say they are unsure why leather jackets encasing 2013 graduates' diplomas had the name of their town spelled wrong.
The cases, which were handed out Tuesday to 348 graduates Cuyahoga Falls High School, said the high school was located in "Cayahoga Falls," the Akron (Ohio) Beacon Journal reported.
Superintendent Todd Nichols said Wednesday he would meet with his staff to try to learn who was responsible for the misspelling of Cuyahoga.
"That's a very good question. That's a question that I have for high school administration," Nichols said.
Jostens, an international company specializing in graduation items and other memorabilia, said it is reprinting the jackets and sending them to the students' homes.
"Jostens is remanufacturing all new diploma covers to all students who received the original diplomas," company spokeswoman Jill Teut said.
It was unclear whether the mistake was the school's or Jostens' but the company is covering the bill for reprinting and shipping costs.
