Whoops! Kelso High School graduates receive diplomas with wrong state seal

KELSO, Wash. -- Kelso is in Washington.

That's why graduates were surprised to see the Oregon state seal on the cover that protects their diplomas.

The name of the school is correct, but somehow the wrong seal made it onto the cover.

Kelso superintendent Glenn Gelbrich told KPTV the mistake was due to an error in the order which was not discovered until after graduation on Saturday.

The diplomas are still valid, and students will soon receive new covers with the Washington state seal.
