Texas school has misspelled name on sign for nine years VIDEO
A Texas elementary school is correcting a spelling mistake made when it changed its name nearly nine years ago.
The school changed its name to honor its first teacher, Mrs. Mary McMillan, who eventually became principal. A relative recently reached out to the Fort Worth Independent School District to say it had bought an extra vowel.
Everything had the incorrect spelling of “Sunrise-McMillian” instead of “Sunrise-McMillan,” including the lettering on the building, printed signs, vinyl congratulatory signs, logos and Facebook.
The lettering on the building was changed Monday.
“Oh, I was kind of shocked,” said Ernie Johnson, who waters the grass on school grounds and never knew the spelling was wrong. “I hadn’t paid it any mind.”
