Hans Herr Students Pay It Forward for Friend
April 10, 2015
Two Hans Herr Elementary classrooms took part in a pay it forward event in honor of Jensen Byrd, who passed away in 2010 after a brave battle with neuroblastoma. Jensen would have celebrated his 10th birthday this month and his family asked friends to gift others with acts of kindness in his memory.
On April 6 and 7, cousins Aidan Koser and Carson Garver met the kindness challenge by treating their third and fifth grade classes to pretzel parties. Auntie Anne's created special pretzels just for them in the shape of awareness ribbons. The boys each read tributes to their friend before passing out the treats to their classmates.
