MURRYSVILLE (KDKA) — Before Franklin Regional High School students go back to class on Wednesday, the community held a rally to show their support Tuesday night at Murrysville Community Park.
Janet Boger, the mother of the most seriously injured student Jared Boger, took to the podium flanked by her other sons Travis and Carter.
She told the crowd that it’s been rough but that Jared is getting better and will recover. The crowd cheered with support.
Carter Boger thanked the crowd for all the well wishes.
It was last Wednesday when police say student Alex Hribal went on a stabbing rampage.
The school superintendent told the students that they’ll be stronger after what happened and that they are loved.
Student after student then approached the crowd to speak.
One told them that God was looking out for them the day of the stabbings because things could have been so much worse.
Another said, “I love you all, and I just wanted to tell you that.”
The rally ended as people lighted candles and sang the Franklin Regional alma mater.
