RETRACTION: In the article, “Students show off professional skills at conference”, which ran on the front page of the January 2019 print edition of the Patterson Press, Jill Biden was incorrectly referred to as the “former First Lady of the Obama administration”. The correct title for Mrs. Biden is “Second Lady”, as she is the wife of former Vice President Joe Biden. The former First Lady is Michelle Obama, who was not present at the Great Schools conference.
This error was NOT made by the students who wrote the article. The authors correctly used the title “Second Lady” and it was erroneously changed to “First Lady” during the editing process. The Patterson Press takes full responsibility for this error and sincerely apologizes to its readers and the authors of the article. This retraction will also appear in the May 2019 print edition of the Patterson Press.
