Havre High students revive old tradition
August 21, 2014
Students of Havre High School hiked up the side of Saddle Butte to make their mark on the history of Havre Wednesday.
Lindsey Kudrna said she invited the entire Havre High School Class of 2015 to help paint the "H" on Saddle Butte, but only a handful of students showed up to help.
Serendipitously, 15 students arrived to show their school spirit in a tradition that has not been performed since the class of 2011.
"We as a class want to be remembered," Kudrna said. "Our senior class wants to make memories and make our last year at Havre High the best it could ever be."
Kudrna and her friends went around to local businesses like Havre Hardware, ProBuild and Walmart to ask for donations of paint supplies.
The group first changed the 11 to a 15 that evening before repainted the "H" and accompanying numbers.
"We are hoping to show the town how proud we are to be Blue Ponies," Kudrna said. "We want to be a senior class that is remembered in 20 years for showing the whole town our school spirit."
