Students who worked on the Moorhead [N.D.] High School yearbook learned a hard lesson this week in the importance of proofreading, as hundreds of final printed copies of the 2013 yearbook arrived with the misspelling “Moorehead” on the cover.
The mistake slipped past an adviser and two classes of students who worked on the yearbook last year. They finalized it after graduation before sending it to Jostens to be printed this summer, Moorhead school officials said.
“They proofed the book and the cover, and they missed it,” district spokeswoman Pam Gibb said. “I don’t know that there’s much we can do now. It’s a mistake, and it was made.”
