How hard would it have been to ask the other members of the Honor society what her name was? Not hard at all. There was no mistake.
Yes ironchef, she is the only African American in the picture!!
That's what makes it so hard to believe that noone knew her name. The teacher in charge should have proof read all of the pages that were to be in the book. Frankly, if I were looking at the picture, and saw this girl and the rest were white, I think I would WANT to know what her name was, if she were able to succeed as she had, and if this mistake shows what kind of students she had to endure, she did this under a stressful and racial environment and I feel that she did more than just being an honor student!! She deserves alot more than just that award!!
Sushi, I'm not sure who all are involved, when it's over with, I'll let you know what all happens.
