On April 20, 1999, Columbine seniors Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris killed 13, injured 24 and then committed suicide. The high school reopened its doors after four months of extensive remodeling and raised the American flag that had flown at half-staff since the shooting.

Teaching her Advanced General Psychology class, Dr. Holly Brand explains the dos and don’ts of interviews. Brand underwent radiation every morning of the fall 2016 semester, followed by a full day of teaching at MBU. The incredible effort won her the respect of her students, and also the university’s Distinguished Faculty Member Award.
