LEXINGTON, Va. (WTVR) – The senior class president at Virginia Military Institute mistakenly sent an email to the entire graduating class that included an attachment with the grade point averages of all 258 seniors, university spokesman Stewart MacInnis told CBS 6 News.

MacInnis confirmed to CBS 6 the email was only supposed to include the names and hometowns of the senior class. However a second attachment that detailed the students’ GPAs was also included.

MacInnis called the situation a simple mistake and said everyone involved feels bad over the situation.
