“A soul of a community hurts”.

Those were words of Reverend John Nordstrom of Christ Community Church when remembering former Ottawa High School Superintendent John Harrison.  Nordstrom said whether its Harrison’s tradition of welcoming students at the top of the high school steps or opening his office to staff, these things “will never be the same after this week”.

Several other pastors joined Nordstrom in offering prayers for the crowd that included students and staff of OTHS and just people from the community.
