The original publication of our article regarding AHS senior Marcus Martin receiving the Act Six scholarship indicated Martin would be the first Native American to attend PLU, earning a Business Administration degree. The article also stated Martin would be the first Native American playing on PLU’s men’s soccer team. We have received updated information correcting this information.
When going to print with this article we used a single source. We pride ourselves on doing better, on checking information from sources prior to publication. That did not happen in this case and we are sorry. We take accountability for the error in the false statements published. As well as for the error in judgment made to publish the article prior to ensuring all information was correct.
We would like to apologize for any disrespect felt by the printed misinformation, especially the members of the PLU Men’s Soccer team and Business Administration program.
We also apologize to Martin for not providing the quality coverage deserved. We know that Martin will continue to do great things in his academic and athletic career at PLU and look forward to following along.
To our readers, we will endeavor to do better. We will continue to aim for, and above the standards and expectations we set and believe you deserve.
