Made-Up Names Appear in NY High School’s Yearbook

SCHAGHTICOKE, N.Y. (AP) — Officials at a small school district in upstate New York say an “honest mistake” led to students being identified in the yearbook as “Creepy smile kid” and “Some tall guy.”

The labels appear in photo captions of the high school yearbook at Hoosick Valley, a rural district 20 miles northeast of Albany.

Acting Superintendent Amy Goodell tells the Troy Record that a “non-intentional, honest mistake” resulted in some members of the track and field team being labeled with made-up names such as “Isolation kid.” Several students were identified simply as “Someone.”

Goodell says corrections are being made and the parents of students whose names weren’t published correctly have been contacted.

The high school has about 380 students, with a graduating class of fewer than 100.
