The Project Crane: Anonymous Edina HS senior leaving legacy

Posted: Updated:
EDINA, Minn. (KMSP) -

An anonymous Edina High School senior gave every student in the school a hand-folded paper crane with encouraging messages to fellow students such as “You are loved,” and “You are special.”


“I wanted to do this at EHS because Edina is always associated with everyone being a rich kid and not caring about others. I knew that if even one person that received a crane was positively influenced, that it all would be worth it…the legacy piece was to make sure each and every student and faculty had a great day.” - The Project Crane



Every year, Edina High School Principal Bruce Locklear meets with the senior class to talk about the importance of legacy and how if differs from tradition. Earlier this year, the anonymous senior approached Locklear to discuss what they wanted the legacy of their senior class to be.

“We don’t measure this, but we see students get engaged in so many service activities, clubs and various leadership opportunities as a result,” said Locklear. “Then you get something like this morning.”

The anonymous senior communicated with the school district on Twitter @theprojectcrane.

In January, the senior also placed 500 cranes all over the Mall of America for a similar purpose. The project took approximately 150 hours to complete.
