From Duluth News Tribune:

Students who worked on the Moorhead 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.

“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.”

The district can’t afford to reprint the yearbooks, which annually cost about $20,000 to $21,000 to produce, Gibb said, noting final invoices haven’t been paid yet for the 2013 yearbook. Sales of the 2013 book have totaled about $19,000 so far, she said.
