    I was Tyson’s art teacher at Sisseton High School. Tyson was a very talented young man. He was a good student, creative and hard working. His paper-Mache sculpture of the “Pit bull dog” was one my favorite works of arts. I feel privileged to have known this fine young man.

    I was Tyson’s Math Teacher at Sisseton High School. Tyson was a great kid & was always willing to help others & put in extra time to complete a goal. He made us all proud when he was interviewed on the news and shared his desire to graduate from high school. He will be greatly missed.

    This one time Jolene and I had to stop next door and Jolene went in to see Gma Kate or something and she had asked Tyson why he was awake and he said he had to have a cup of warm milk before he went to sleep. She and I couldn’t stop laughing for the longest time. Crazy guy could make anyone smile with his crazy personality.
