Students recently asked their principal to attend a senior meeting. Little did she know, however, her life was about to change.
Earlier this month, Courtney Vashaw, principal of the Profile school in Bethlehem, NH, was diagnosed with a rare cancer. The senior class banned together and made a unanimous decision — to give up their senior class trip and donate nearly $8,000 to Courtney’s medical care.
The students wanted to show Courtney, who has been working at the school for seven years, the selflessness she displays on a daily basis.
This incredible principal, as you’ll see below, was completely stunned by the kindhearted gesture that’s now going viral.
“I feel like this has been a beautiful experience as an educator,” she told ABC News. “You work so hard to try and help cultivate not only academically astute young people but kids who care. I am just so impressed and so proud of these kids for being the embodiment of that.”
In a few weeks, Courtney is scheduled to undergo treatment, but not before celebrating with her students for picking up their diplomas.
If these students give you hope for the future, please SHARE this touching video with your friends on Facebook!
