Some information was incorrect in the June 2 Graduation 2009 story about AFNORTH High School parents writing messages to their graduating seniors. School principals supported the inclusion of the message tradition in this year’s graduation ceremony and did not try to eliminate it from the program. The move to eliminate the tradition and the compromise reached to allow shorter messages occurred in 2006. Stars and Stripes regrets the error.
