Yearbook Mistake

School district apologizes for yearbook mistake

A Texas school district has apologized to a student identified only as "Black Girl" in a high school yearbook photo. All the white students are identified by name in a photograph of the Waxahachie High School National Honor Society. The teen identified as "Black Girl" is the only black student in the photo. A schools spokeswoman says the caption apparently was intended as a placeholder until the yearbook staff could identify the student. She tells a newspaper (The Waxahachie Daily Light) the label was a poor choice, but wasn't malicious. The spokeswoman says the school district will reprint the yearbook pages affected by the mistake.
