Principal is diagnosed with cancer – Students surprise her with a gift that leaves her in tears
The students of one of the classes in a Bethlehem high school in New Hampshire were thrilled to go on a traditional four-day school trip to Rydin’ Hi Ranch in New York, but they quickly set their plans aside when they heard that their principal Courtney Vashaw was battling an aggressive form of cancer. Instead of going on the trip, they would much rather collect the money and donate it to their principal to help pay for her medical treatment.
One of the students, Ian Baker, said the following: “We decided to not go on our senior class trip this year and donate all of our funds to your cause.”
Classmate Hunter Leighton also shared his thoughts: “She is one of the strongest, most determined women I know, and if it can happen to her, you know anything can happen to anyone.”
