"The vendor, National Quality Products, located in Fairfax, VA, will pay for the reprinting of the diplomas and mail them to the students in about six weeks, according to an apology letter issued by the vendor to PGCPS."

Is this really a big deal? How many actually graduate from HS in PG county? Do they know enough to notice the error anyway?

It'd have been funnier if it had been misspelled as pogrom, probably more appropriate as well.

What I find most amusing is that the Patch article discusses that everyone was checking with each other, and discovered that all of the diplomas had the error. Do these people think that each diploma is hand-lettered or something?

They had to check with each other. How do you think they passed tests when in HS?
