'Iowa' spelled wrong on NICC diploma cover

Posted:
PEOSTA (KWWL) -

Northeast Iowa Community College graduates will get new diploma covers after Iowa was spelled 'Ioma.'

The three hundred graduates from both the Peosta and Calmar locations noticed the error this past week during their graduation ceremony.

College administrators knew there was an error on the cover prior to the ceremony but thought it would be too jarring to not have anything to present to the graduates on stage.

The printing company Continental Group Inc. has been working with the college for many years and they will be replacing the covers free of charge, Tracy Kruse, director of External Relations at NICC, said.

The graduates will receive the covers with the right spelling of Iowa at the same time they get their diploma after grades are finalized.
