SPRING CREEK, Nev. -- Students at a northeastern Nevada high school were surprised when they received their diplomas: the word "graduation" was misspelled as "graduataion."
Jostens spokesman Bryan Durfey acknowledges the company was responsible for the mistake, and says corrected diplomas already have been sent by priority mail directly to graduates.
He says the company realizes it isn't going to be perfect, and its policy is to fix errors immediately.
The school will not be charged for the extra diplomas.
In a similar incident, diplomas at a Maryland high school are being reprinted because they contained a misspelling of the word "program."
