High School Students Gave Their Trip Money To Principal Battling Cancer

Updated on 5 September, 2019 at 4:29 pm By

In a very thoughtful and affectionate gesture, the graduating class at Profile Junior-Senior High School in Bethlehem (United States) gave their senior class trip money to the school’s principal, who was recently diagnosed with cancer, reports WCVB.

The class was scheduled to leave for New York and spend four days there. After four years of hard work, the senior class gave her nearly $8,000 for medical care.

The gift comes less than a week after the principal told them she had been diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of cancer.

 

After hearing the news, the seniors took a vote, which was unanimous to give everything to the principal, Courtney Vashaw. Christopher Sirois, the senior class president, said:

“Every one of us has a connection with her, and she has given so much to us that we just wanted to give back.”

“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.”

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. She said:

“It is very hard for me to accept help, and I have no idea what to say. They are (a) pretty remarkable, fun, and astonishing group of people.”
