Sophomore Chris Renteria came into the school building carrying a backpack filled with two dozen roses.  In celebration of the upcoming Valentine’s Day, Renteria decided to give roses to several girls in the school.  

“I just think every girl deserves to receive something nice on Valentine’s Day, even if it’s just a rose,” Renteria said.

He ran through the halls handing roses to friends and teachers on his way to his first period class. Handing them out is the best part, according to Renteria.

“They’re usually surprised, excited, and happy,” he said.

I just think every girl deserves to receive something nice on Valentine’s Day.”

This is not the first time that he has done this.

“I did it last year. It was fun and I decided to do it again this year,” he said. “It was pricey, but well worth it. It’s only once a year and I enjoy doing it.”

Another sophomore, Jonathan Echavarria, also handed out roses today, according to teachers Andrea Buck, Molly Delp and Mandy McFall.
