Episode 4: Keep Going and Don't Look Back
Updated: Jun 28, 2020
June 10th, 2014 was supposed to be a day of celebration for the students of Reynolds High School in Troutdale, Oregon. Instead of taking finals, pulling senior pranks and saying goodbye for the summer, the 3,000 students and staff were horrified by the news of an active shooter on campus.
In this episode, Emily and Alisha discuss the shooter’s life building up to the incident, the victims of the attack and the shocking statistics that our students face in their daily lives. At the time of his death, Emilio Hoffman was dating Alyssa Karm, who, along with her boyfriend and fellow survivor Caden Gordy were gracious enough to sit-down with Alisha and discuss their relationship and what transpired that day.
