Carrington High School Students Make Wishes Come True

student council members
This month’s blog comes from David Nowatzki, Principal and Student Council Advisor at Carrington High School. David shares his experience with the Kids For Wish Kids® (KFWK) program and how students can have a part in making wishes come true. Kids For Wish Kids is a program designed for kids to help kids. Students engage in philanthropy and service activities to help make a child’s wish come true or make wishes extra special and memorable. While teachers or parents often serve as advisors, the goal of a KFWK program is for students to come up with ideas and carry them out. Ownership belongs solely to the students involved.

Jenna wished to go to Hawaii when her wish was granted in 2004. At the time she was 17 years old and had been diagnosed with long QT syndrome, a genetic heart disorder that leaves a person vulnerable to sudden, potentially fatal fainting spells.
