After two years of work, MS Student Council grants Stella's wish!
Middle School Student Council has worked hard for the past two years to raise funds for the Make A Wish program, and they were finally able to grant Stella's wish! As a patient at St. Jude, nine-year-old Stella and her family have certainly faced a difficult time. As a surprise, her wish to go to Disney World was granted through the efforts of the Student Council. She thought she was coming with her parents to tell ECS about St. Jude and their family's story. How exciting for shy Stella to learn that she was going to Disney!
Also we were thrilled to have Ashli Avis, 1994 ECS alumna, join us for the big announcement. Ashli serves as Make-A-Wish Mid-South director of wishes, overseeing and growing the wishes of children with life-threatening diseases.
Following the presentation, a short reception for Stella and her family, along with Student Council representatives, was held in the Worldview Center. Together they enjoyed cupcakes and celebrated this great occasion!
