A group of high school seniors found out their principal is facing a rare, aggressive form of cancer, so they decided to do something to help her.
“We decided to not go on our senior class trip this year and donate all of our funds to your cause,” students told the New Hampshire principal.
Seniors at the Profile school in Bethlehem, New Hampshire saved nearly $8,000 for their senior trip to a ranch in New York. Now, they want principal Vashaw to use it to help pay for her treatment.
Less than a week ago, she told her students about her diagnosis.
“It is very hard for me to accept help,” said Principal Courtney Vashaw. “And I have no idea what to say to you.”
“Every one of us has a connection with her, and she has given so much to us that we just wanted to give back,” said class president Christopher Sirois.
The seniors will have some sort of trip, but it will be local rather than an overnight trip, as they originally planned. They say there will be more fundraisers to help their beloved principal.
