M-PHS Commencement Marysville

  • Jun 18, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:39PM

I read with interest your June 11 story about the Marysville-Pilchuck High School 2008 Commencement ceremony.

The Commencement program had the same error in two of the three places her name was listed. Ms. Zehnder's name was listed as the Salutatorian, but it was spelled incorrectly as "Sender."
