Book of blunders, BGHS yearbook filled with misprints

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (KSAZ) - Yearbooks are a keepsake most students want to hold on to forever.

Students at the Barry Goldwater High School in Phoenix are not as excited as they should be.

That is because their yearbook is full of incorrect dates and misprints.

A senior quote printed across a student picture, capitalization errors, plus the wrong year and volume printed on and in the yearbook.

"It's hilarious," said Tim Collins, a student at BGHS.

"I think it's funny," said Steven Frye.

Tim Collins and Steven Frye got some laughs from the mistakes, but many BGHS students think they shouldn't have paid $70 for the book full of blunders.

"They should have tried better; they should have been cautious about it, but I guess they have next year," said Frye.

On Thursday, the CEO of Grads Photography issued this statement about their part in publishing the yearbook: "We are truly sorry for the cover that has the wrong year, the school and our company both failed to catch that error. The student that was affected by writing on her image is also an extremely regrettable situation."

The school also issued stickers Thursday to cover up the misprints, but that's not good enough for everyone.

"They should probably reprint it and tell the people whose pictures they've ruined," said Collins.

Ironically the schools yearbook program has won awards in the past, and students have earned accolades from the National Scholastic Press Association.

Grads Photography also tells FOX 10 that they are only responsible for the printing and binding of the book, the grammatical errors and mistakes in the layout design were created by the school. The company says they have agreed to give the school a discount forgiving the $6,000 balance the school still owed.
