PLYMOUTH, Mass., June 21 (UPI) -- The principal of a Massachusetts high school said she has received corrected diplomas after the original documents misspelled the words "for" and "and."

Principal Kathleen McSweeney of Plymouth North High School said Minnesota company Jostens, which printed the diplomas, created the replacement diplomas at its own expense after the errors were discovered, Wicked Local Plymouth reported Tuesday.


Blaine Stewart, Jostens' grad products design manager, said the errors, which misspelled "for" as "fro" and "and" as "ans," were not on the original document approved by school officials. He said the error was the result of the company transferring artwork to a new system.

McSweeney said the diplomas will soon be distributed to the 263 seniors who graduated June 4.
