Marshay Collier, 17, dressed her 10-month-old daughter, Camiya, in her own cap and gown to accept the honor. Collier said her desire to set an example for her daughter gave her the motivation she needed to push through. "I was so excited to walk the stage," Collier told local station KCCI. Collier admitted that she wondered if she would graduate even before she got pregnant, so the fact that she did it with a baby to care for makes her achievement all the more impressive.

The books were supposed to be handed out June 12.

King said several "major typos" had been overlooked, and staff had also discovered "inappropriate messaging by several graduating students in their graduation write-ups."

CBC hasn't seen a copy of the printed yearbook, but Heather Nicholson, a Grade 12 student who worked on the project, said some sections contained lewd language and references to gangs.

"I'm just a little sad that we didn't catch it in time and that it has to be censored, and we have to end up pulling it all the way up to the last possible day to be handed out."

Principal apologizes

Nicholson said students at the school in southwest Ottawa spend the first half of the school year working on the yearbook to earn a credit. The class then becomes a voluntary club, she said, until the yearbooks are printed at the end of the year.

She said the teacher who oversaw the yearbook class left midway through the school year, so students finalized the project on their own.

"A teacher usually does look over it to double check, but unfortunately not this year," Nicholson said.

In his email to parents, King apologized for the oversight and said "it should have been caught sooner." He said staff are in the process of assembling a team "to redact and adhere the thousands of labels needed to repair the 420 yearbooks sold."

'It looks bad on all of us'

Student Greg Mcfarlene, 17, said he paid about $45 to purchase a yearbook and the situation is frustrating.

"It's kind of annoying just because we did pay for them. We were hoping to get them this year."

Faith Greco, 17, didn't purchase a yearbook, but worries the offensive language reflects poorly on the entire school.

"A lot of us take pride in going to John McCrae because it's a very inclusive school with a lot of very special people in it," she said. "It looks bad on all of us."

In his email, King admonished those who would "sully this permanent record as their high school legacy."

He told parents the school is hoping to have the redacted yearbooks ready by the last day of school, set for June 25.
