Smith said in an e-mail that Kristjan was a caring, compassionate young man, who reached out to help others, so some of his classmates thought of having the school community do random acts of kindness in his memory.
On Friday, the students created a bulletin board that incorporates parts of the Albanian flag colors and symbols, in honor of Kristjan’s nationality. As students do act of kindness, they will write what they have done on a ribbon and it will be attached to the bulletin board. The project will start on Monday.
Smith says this Sunday they'll have an interfaith gathering for Shelton High School staff, students, and parents.
