Pay It Forward

For Sophia

Make a Wish

As many of you know, Longbranch student Sophia Kappen completed her Make a Wish trip in February to swim with mermaids. Sophia fought leukemia for one long and complicated year.

Our students asked to do something grand in honor of Sophia, to recognize her spirit and her fight, and most importantly in her name. We have decided to pay it forward by paying for another child's Make a Wish trip from the Northern Kentucky area.

Recently, Longbranch was paired with Mya, an 8 year old student in Campbell County diagnosed with lymphoma. Mya's wish is to visit Disney World to see her favorite Disney character, Ariel.

In honor of our Sophia and to benefit Mya's wish, the Longbranch student leaders along with Mrs. Melvin will produce Little Mermaid Jr. on May 11, 12, and 13. All ticket sales will be donated to Mya's wish fund. Our goal is $10,000.
