    It turns out a Pennsylvania high school graduate's scholarship was just a load of bull.

    Bangor Area High School grad Ethan Rosenberry says he invented an award named for Jack Hitte (middle initial: S) when the guidance office passed around forms to seniors to report any awards they'd received.

    Rosenberry tells The Express-Times of Easton that he decided to make up an award that acknowledged he'd won jack, er, squat.

    Rosenberry says the school's administration wasn't too pleased when the award was read aloud by the principal. But he still got his diploma after a stern talking-to.

    The district says it's looking into the prank but declined further comment.

    Rosenberry is headed to Slippery Rock University in the fall to study political science.
