THE BENEFITS OF CUTTING CLASS
Three California teens are now heroes—thanks to cutting class. Garen Kissoyan, Peter Kravariotis, and Kirill Yantikov, seniors at California High School in San Ramon, had just left campus when they noticed smoke coming from a nearby house. After being alerted by the homeowner that her 94-year-old mother was still inside, the boys rushed into the house, where they found the nearly unconscious woman sitting in a chair, coughing and covered in soot. They rescued both her and her dog. “She would have been gone in a minute and a half more,” a neighbor said.
