NBC recently cancelled a sitcom titled Welcome to Sweden. The show centered around an American who moved to Sweden to be near his girlfriend, who was from that country, and to get away from the bustle of New York. The episodes showed Sweden as a relaxed, welcoming country where most people got along with each other.

New NRHEG foreign exchange student Linnea Strom-Olsen said that is a pretty accurate description of her home country. Strom-Olsen, who goes by Lilly, is staying with Mark and Sandy Tollefson, and their daughter Emma, of New Richland. Tollefsons said they had been contemplating hosting an exchange student for a couple years and have a little more room in the house now with both sons Carter and Spencer off to college.

Speaker leaves students spellbound


SPELLBOUND STUDENTS — Tasha Schuh, a quadriplegic from Ellsworth, Wis., held the interest of NRHEG students on the first day of school. (Submitted photo)

Sixteen feet is a long way to fall. Falling that far and landing on your head on a concrete floor is often a tragic fall; survival odds are long.

Yet, that’s just what Tasha Schuh of Ellsworth, Wis., did in 1997. While working on a production of The Wizard of Oz at her high school in Red Wing, Minn., Schuh fell through a trapdoor, breaking her neck, fracturing her skull, and crushing her spinal cord. She was in a coma for eight days and wasn’t given much chance to live.

Yet there she was in front of the NRHEG student body on the first day of school, speaking about her life experiences and how to deal with adversity. “Yes I can,” was a phrase she taught students to say in sign language, a phrase she has used as a mantra often during her recovery and subsequent embarkation on a career as an inspirational speaker.
