WDC students 'pay it forward' for schools in Hackleburg, Ala., destroyed by tornado
Hackleburg, Alabama may be 1,114 miles from Wadena, but the two small communities share something in common: an EF4 tornado ripped through each community and destroyed their schools.
Hackleburg, population 1,500, lost their elementary, middle and high school on April 27, 2011, when a tornado ripped through their town. Unfortunately, 29 people were killed and close to 90 percent of the town was destroyed by the twister.
