Student Death - Newberry (MI)

Start Date: 07/08/2019


Three teams responded to this call at Tahquamenon Area High School in Newberry, Michigan. Even though it was summer vacation, the school opened its doors for any students who wanted to come. Five counselors from various areas, a teacher, and the principal were there for any of the students who needed to talk to someone. The school also had the gym opened for basketball and dodge ball, plus food and small activities in the cafeteria. The three HOPE teams found that staying in the main entrance made the best spot for students and staff as they flowed between the gym and the cafeteria. Even though it was a rather small group of students, they and the staff thanked us for having our dogs there.
