At one Fort Worth school, correcting a misspelled name hasn't been easy.

Officials nine years ago renamed Sunrise Elementary School to add the name of the school's first teacher and first principal, Mary Collins McMillan.

But they added an extra 'i.' The school became Sunrise-McMillian instead of Sunrise-McMillan.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports ( ) that officials were told of the mistake by McMillan's niece, Gloria Harper Lett. For weeks, they've changed all the incorrect references to "McMillian" they could find.

Lett returned Thursday with a portrait of her aunt for the school's front hallway. Principal Marion Mouton assures the newspaper that the school got the spelling on the portrait right.
