Muslim Student: Yearbook ID'd Me as 'Isis Phillips'


Monday, 09 May 2016 07:57 AM

A Muslim high school student says she's saddened and hurt after being identified in her California high school's yearbook as "Isis Phillips."

Bayan Zehlif has posted a photo on Facebook of what she says is her picture with the name "Isis Phillips" underneath it in the Los Osos High School yearbook. She writes in the post that she's "extremely saddened, disgusted, hurt and embarrassed." She says the school reached out and told her it was a 'typo,' but she adds "I beg to differ."

Chaffey Joint Union High School District Superintendent Mat Holton tells the Los Angeles Times that Zehlif was misidentified as another student with the name Isis. He says an investigation will be conducted.

Holton tells the newspaper yearbook distribution has been halted until the error is fixed.
