So, it came as a bit of a surprise to read on her campaign website that she had been awarded a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree from Keene State College. That's funny ... I didn't know Pratt had any degree. She had never mentioned previously that she had a degree, only that she attended Keene State College. And there was no longer any mention of Bryn Mawr either.
But perhaps it was just a typo or scrivener's error on her campaign website. However, Pratt's assertion that she earned a BA from Keene State started showing up other places too. It was listed as part of her candidate's statement for the Eagle Forum. More importantly, it was listed on page 116 of the Voter's Pamphlet from last November's general election. Also, it's listed as part of her current official campaign statement for both the primary and general election that we are now engaged in.
Others began to notice this potential discrepancy too, so some inquiries were made to the registrar of Keene State College about Lovel Pratt's (née Richardson's) degree status. Here's what the registrar says:
