WAXAHACHIE, Texas A North Texas school district has apologized to a student identified only as “Black Girl” in a high school yearbook photo of the school’s National Honor Society.

All white students are identified by name in the photograph in the Waxahachie High School yearbook distributed Friday. The teen identified as “Black Girl” is the only black student in the photo.

Waxahachie school district spokeswoman Candace Ahlfinger says the district and the school board issued an immediate apology when the caption was reported.

Ahlfinger says the caption apparently was intended as a placeholder until the yearbook staff could identify the student. She tells the Waxahachie Daily Light that the label was a poor choice, but it was not meant maliciously nor meant to be printed.

She says the district is having the four pages affected by the mistake reprinted as soon as possible.
