In the Jan. 16 issue on the Front page story titled “GSU alumni attempt Guinness World Record,” the cut line under the picture Sisters Vernita Wayne-Andrews, Ida Bell Wayne-Ford and Melba Wayne-Williams did not attend GSU, but seven of their siblings are Grambling Grads.
On last week’s Voices page in the Hear Us Roar section the information and pictures were compiled by Jasmine Roper instead of Nicholas Hart.
The Gramblinite regrets the errors.
