Tristan told the outlet that he and his friends kept their plans private. He added that they "wanted every girl to feel important and special on Valentine’s Day."
Dr. Sarah Guerrero, the school’s principal, praised the trio for their efforts. Sarah told KMBC that watching the boys handing out the flowers gave her "chills".
