I Didn’t Think I Could Go Back to School Today, But You Folks Made It Possible

Diana Knous is the Regional Business Manager at Pacific Power and Light in Roseburg. Diana helped organize the line of trucks, signs, and people who welcomed UCC students back to school in the days after the shooting.

It’s fall. It’s dark at six o’clock in the morning and seeing those trucks roll in and the flags roll out. So many people came. There were headlights everywhere. The community lined themselves all the way to the college on both sides of the street.
