Minnehaha remembers John Carlson

As the Minnehaha community mourns the loss of John Carlson, it celebrates his life and his lifelong relationship with the school. Listen to an interview conducted by Talon staff writer Emma Melling from March 24, 2016, as she was working on a story published in April 2016 as “Humans of ‘Haha.”
