School Misspelled Own Name for 9 Years

Nine years ago, a Fort Worth elementary school changed its name to honor a teacher, but ... it got the name wrong!

A Fort Worth elementary school is correcting a spelling mistake made when it changed its name nearly nine years ago.

Sunrise Elementary School added "McMillan" to its name in the 2003-2004 school year -- but also added an extra "i."

The school changed its name to honor its first teacher -- Mrs. Mary McMillan, who eventually became principal. A relative recently reached out to the Fort Worth Independent School District to say it had bought an extra vowel.

The school is now correcting that mistake. As a dedicated typoist, I feel the school's pain: Link - via MSNBC

At top speed I have a tendency to add entire suffixes onto words. The word "understand" becomes "understanding" and words like "tumult" become "tumultuous". Sometimes as I'm approaching a word like "friend", I will think to myself: "You don't need -ship on the end, so don't do it." and when I read over it later it still says "friendship".
