Offering hope to fellow classmates

-A A +A

One goal, two young ladies and five days worth of activities, to build relationships demonstrate a safety net and empower young people to make support a four-letter word, love.
Faith Glasco and Elizabeth Hjelvik started planning last April and next week, their baby will spread its wings, at Los Alamos High School and Middle School.
“I knew Isaac (Hayden) and Liz knew Dominic (Lucido), and we both agreed that something had to be done at the high school that would make a difference,” Glasco said. “Everything after that just went from there.”
This has been a joyous and passionate journey for the girls even though it added stress to their already busy lives.
The feedback they are receiving from staff and students is positive according to Glasco. “Lots of people have told us that this week is a great idea and that they are proud of us.”
The duo credits a variety of helpers with their success including; Key Club, Natural Helpers, Student Council, NHS, Anti-bullying club, GSA, the art classes, local businesses and several friends that kept their stress levels in check.
One day that is sure to reduce the stress of all Hilltoppers is, “Compliments and Carnations Day,” on Wednesday. Their goal is for everyone to receive a flower and a compliment, both which add to happiness.
