Local college billboard has error
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (WSVN) -- A billboard for a South Florida college contains a huge mistake.
The billboard for South Florida Career College, located on Pines Boulevard, advertised higher education and a better career for potential students but also displayed a spelling error.
The billboard was supposed to say, "It's never too late to start your career." However, it actually says, "It's never too late to start you career." Local residents were stunned at the error. Yadeja Tolliver said, "I think it's not professional if you're going to advertise a college. It's supposed to be part of a school."
Phil Dematteo agreed. "I think it's not a good career starter if you can't spell it right," he added.
The billboard was not the only spelling error associated with an educational institution. Crews misspelled "school" in a crosswalk in front of Goulds Elementary School in Miami, on June 25, 2009.
South Florida Career College did not comment on the grammatical error.
It was unknown who was responsible for the spelling mistake: the school, the designers of the billboard or the person who put up the sign.
