Students Make Wishes Come True
Students at St. Agnes Academy-St. Dominic School made wishes come true for one very special little boy when they surprised him during a recent wish granting ceremony. Five-year-old Sebastian, who is from Puerto Rico, arrived at school with his parents and was greeted by students from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Sebastian navigated an obstacle course built by the sophomore class. The obstacle course resembled a life-sized Minecraft game and included some of Sebastian’s favorite things - baseball, the Transformers, and Sponge Bob and Patrick. At the completion of the Minecraft course Sebastian learned that he and his family will be travelling to Orlando to visit Universal Studios and meet the Transformers.
This is the seventeenth year St. Agnes and St. Dominic students have participated in the Make-A-Wish “Kids for Wish Kids” program. The sophomore Make-A-Wish coordinators were Libby Wunderlich and Carolyn Barksdale. The entire school participated in special fundraising activities including a Read-a-Thon and Trivia game. Through their efforts, the students raised $5,000 to fulfill Sebastian’s wish.
