Make-A-Wish Gets Help From JCHS To Make Twins' Hawaii Trip A Reality

Posted by John Peck in General  |  Post a comment

Some local 8-year-old twins will soon be heading on a dream vacation to Hawaii, thanks to the generosity of students at James Clemens High School.

Hannah and Hailey Shores were honored April 18 in a pep-rally style gathering where their dream vacation wish was revealed. The pair have cystic fibrosis. Hannah expressed her Hawaii interest to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which matched her desire with a school wanting to help. TV coverage links below.

The school raised the $8,000 for the trip and invited the girls for a "reveal" party. Under the leadership of the Student Government Association, the school decorated the gym in Hawaii themes, had students wear Hawaiin shirts and leihs, and arranged for hula dancers. The twins enjoy soccer so they were invited to play with the girls soccer team and were made honorary captains.
The SGA bought the girls pull along travel bags filled with gift cards, travel items and other goodies.

Students and faculty did an outstanding job making it a festive occassion for the family that was enjoyed by all.
