The graduating class at Profile Junior-Senior High School in Bethlehem made a heartfelt decision to give the money raised for their senior class trip to the school’s principal, who was recently diagnosed with cancer.


"Principal Courtney Vashaw said they work hard to teach the students about caring for others and being compassionate, but not in her wildest dreams did she think that lesson would directly affect her."

“We decided to not go on our senior class trip this year and donate all of our funds to your cause,” said Ian Baker, a senior. The gift comes less than a week after Vashaw told them she had been diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of cancer. After four years of hard work, the senior class gave her nearly $8,000 for medical care."

"After hearing the news, the seniors took a vote, which was unanimous to give everything to Vashaw."


We know a couple kids at this school, it was a very heartwarming story.

That'll just fix the deductible........

Good sentiment from some good kids, however.
