ARLINGTON (CBS 11 NEWS) - It’s no surprise to find counterfeit tickets at major sporting events.  However, fake tickets for a high school graduation is a whole new ballgame.

Students graduating from Cedar Hill High School this weekend are only allowed 10 tickets for the ceremony, which will be held on the University of Texas-Arlington campus.  The demand for extra tickets is so high that someone is printing fake ones.

The school has recalled all of the tickets issued after discovering that someone has been printing and selling counterfeit ones to students and their families.

Tammy Mariani, the school’s principal, told parents in a letter that “We have taken every step possible to investigate this activity.”

Cedar Hill High senior Artajia Weatherspoon says she had to turn away relatives who wanted to attend her commencement ceremony because of the ticket restrictions.

“I don’t think there should be a limit on how many people can come to your graduation,” she said.

Parent Denita Miller agrees.  “I think that it’s terrible, and it’s very inconvenient for others,” she said.  Miller is among several parents willing to buy more tickets to accommodate relatives.

Students say extra tickets are going for $20 to $25 each.
