Memorial Service scheduled to celebrate lives of the three Aldo Leopold Charter School students

A Memorial service celebrating the lives of Ella Jaz Kirk, Michael Sebastian Mahl, and Ella Sala Myers will be held at 2pm on Sunday June 01 at the Fine Arts Center Theater on the campus of Western New Mexico University.

This service is open to the public and we encourage their participation.


We are planning the Memorial service to be a celebration of the lives of the three students who attended Aldo Leopold Charter School.
