Thousands of Roses Delivered to Herriman and Riverton High Schools on Valentine’s Day Morning Thanks to Students with Big Hearts

Students receiving a roseThis Valentine’s Day will be one to remember for students at Herriman High School thanks to some members of the school’s cross-country team with very big hearts. The team decided they didn’t want anyone feeling left out on Valentine’s Day, so they went to work raising money to buy roses – enough for every girl at Herriman High. In fact, they had enough roses that the team decided to share them, surprising students at Riverton High School as well. The cross country team hopes it will instill in everyone the idea that caring about others is important every single day.
