Hannah Dey, the Honor Society president at Boulder City High School, could only think of her schoolmates and friends from Norway when she heard the tragic news of the July 22 bombing and shootings that killed 77 people in that country Sixty-nine died at a youth camp.
Boulder City High School hosted three exchange students last school year from Norway — Malin Gaden, Malin Molden, and Petter Stangjordet.
It seems many others in Boulder City were just as concerned about the trio from Norway and wanted to show support. So, Dey and others planned a “Stand With Norway” project and successfully completed it on Aug. 5 at the school.
“The purpose of the project was to show the former exchange students and others in Norway that students at Boulder City High School and people throughout our town supported them and thought about them after the recent tragedy,” Dey said. “When we heard the news about Norway we were worried about our friends. We were able to email Malin Gaden who lives about two hours from where the tragedy occurred. We all felt such a huge relief that she and the other exchange students were OK.
