High school principal congratulates wrong school in plagiarized graduation message Published: June 18, 2014

A high school principal in New York is being accused of plagiarizing nearly his entire message to the Roosevelt High School Class of 2014, which was printed in the school’s yearbook, Yahoo News reports.

In his message, Roosevelt Principal Dr. Steven Strachan tells the graduates how proud he is of them and that they are a class of “great leaders, articulate orators, brilliant scientists, breathtaking athletes and extraordinary artists.” The problem is that those words, along with a majority of Strachan’s message, were written by California principal Dr. Ted Barone and presented to Albany High School graduates in 2013, according to Yahoo.
