DALLAS (May 16, 2000) -- Greyhound Lines, Inc. will deliver a wooden heart monument to Columbine High School today.
The heart is a gift from the students of Castle Mont High School in Oakland, California. The gift, which was carved by students in construction and manufacturing classes, is 48 inches by 48 inches and includes the signatures of students from Castle Mont High School and the slogan, "We Care."
Greyhound Package Express (GPX) delivered the heart free of charge from Oakland, California to Denver. Once arriving in Denver, Nobert Hernandez, Denver terminal manager, will hand deliver the surprise gift to Columbine High School.
"When Castle Mont requested our help to get this important gift to Columbine students, I was proud to be a part of the process," said Dave Phillips, general manager, GPX. "We want to help the students of Columbine High School anyway that we can, and this was the perfect opportunity"
