When the bell signaling homeroom rang Wednesday at Millard West High School, a crowd of student troubadours carrying stringed instruments and sporting wings and hearts broke into small groups and fanned out through the hallways.
One string quartet — Monica Swenson, Katie Schulz, Will Muller and Aaron Stoddard — popped into a gym. “We have a musical valentine for Lauren,” the student serving as the quartet's handler announced as the group zeroed in on senior Lauren Skrabel.
