mistake means new diplomas for oswego east grads


students who graduated from oswego east high school saturday are set to receive replacement diplomas after an incorrect signature was discovered, officials said.community unit school district 308 administrators found out the new diplomas carried the signature of former superintendent matthew wendt, rather than current superintendent john sparlin, the superintendent said. the error was due to clerical error at the school, and the company that prints diplomas agreed to reprint them at no cost to the district, he said.
