The 2011 Senior Class at Webber Township HS is a special lot!

Dear Mrs. Smith:
Some difficult lessons are best learned early in life so that those lessons get factored in all decisions for the present and future. When everything goes smoothly, we are often lulled into thinking the road ahead will always be easy to navigate. When we are confronted with adversity, especially severe adversity, it jars us into realizing how fragile life is, how unpredictable, and helps us to sort out what is not worth fussing about from what is really important. So many people talk about their dreams of traveling when, by a little prioritizing here and there and a few sacrifices here and there they could go anywhere they want when they want to go and not wait a lifetime hoping for some distant opportunity to travel.

I go to so many places, expensive places, where, walking beside me in a museum or on a beautiful and historic street, there is a back-packing student who will shop for dinner in a cheese shop and a bakery and overnight in a hostel, but there right there with me in places like Monaco or Budapest or Paris or Rome. And if you really value education, there really is no better place than the world itself as the most valuable classroom experience.

I am so glad that I learned about the situation faced by the Webber Township HS Senior Class. I am even happier that I could play a role in uplifting their spirits by providing them with an opportunity to celebrate their graduation and highlight this transitioning period for them in a carefree environment in Branson, MO to put back into the equation the fun of a senior trip that seemed for a while to be something that wouldn't/couldn't happen.
I guess that the lesson of this part of the story is that life's surprises can sometimes also be very good. These teens deserve at least that! They are a very special group of teens and I'm sure their families, friends, and teachers are very proud of them. I know I sure am!

Dear Stephanie,
Thank you for giving us a class trip. I thought it was a good idea to give all our money to Derek but I think its really generous of you to give us a senior trip. I am glad we get a senior trip but i wish derek was able to go with us. You are a really wonderful person who is doing a really great thing for us. Once again i give a huge thank you!!

Thank You Travel Fairy Godmother!
I thank you immensely for taking time and money out of your busy schedule and sending us seniors to Branson! I still don't know how you heard about what we did, and I still don't understand why you're giving us a Senior Trip, but I am very grateful. I apologize if we seemed lackluster when we received the news about this unbelievable gift we would receive, but we were, and still are, in shock about it.

fjacinto92 02-03-2011 11:01 AM

Muchas Gracias!!
My class really appreciate the fact that you awarded us with this trip! We honestly feel that we don't deserve it and what we did for Derek was for his benefit and we did it just so he can get better. We never expected to get anything out of this. Again, we feel very grateful for your kindness! Thank you again for awarding us with this trip! :)

I want to thank you for giving our class the money to go on a trip to Branson. That was a very generous thing for you to do for our small class. I wish that the world had more people like you! We are all very excited and still can't believe that someone would do something like this for us. So thank you very much again!

Thankyou Letter
Dear Ms. Abrams, Thank you very much for being such a generous philanthropist. It means alot to myself and all of my classmates to get to go on a senior trip and make many senior memories because we thought that we wouldn't be able to have one because of donating all of our class trip money to a fellow classmate in need. Thank you for everything that you have done for us.

dchurch 02-03-2011 11:14 AM

Thank you
Stephanie, When I found out that you were giving us our trip back, I honestly didn't know if it was real or not. After it sunk in and we started making plans I finally realized how awesome this was going to be and now I am ecstatic! I don't know how much it is costing you but it is priceless memories that no one can take away from us. Thank you so very much!!!

jackattack96 02-03-2011 11:16 AM

Dear Stephanie,
Thank you for the generous donation to our senior class at Webber Township. We are just oh so happy that we get to go on our senior trip! We are all looking forward to visiting Branson, Missouri! You're a magnificent human being! :)
Hope to meet you someday!
