Jessica Frick and Emmy Hopkins, seniors at Washington High School, recently completed a DECA project that was months in the making with the Make-A-Wish Foundation involving a local 5-year old boy and his dream to go to Legoland California in Carlsbad, Calif.

Frick and Hopkins raised a total of $8,016.73. They will donate it to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, who will then fund the family’s trip to Legoland.

“We want to give a big thank you to our generous community that helped us reach our goal of $5,000. The community of Washington is truly amazing the way they are so willing to give to a family in need,” Frick said. “We had so many businesses and individuals come to us and ask if they could donate, which warmed our hearts. The community was a vital part in reaching our goal and we could not have done it without them.”

The Make-A-Wish Foundation helps grant wishes to kids with life-threatening medical conditions, giving them more than an amazing experience. A wish come true has the power to make kids feel stronger, more courageous, and more determined to overcome their illnesses. Many families and healthcare providers believe the wish experience is the turning point in a wish kid's battle against their illness.

The local boy was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, cancer of the soft tissue, in December of 2016. He had surgery to remove the tumor and has had a number of tests and hospital visits.

Initial tests indicated that in addition to his tumor, there were spots in his lungs making his diagnosis Stage 4. He was facing an entire year of chemo, radiation and blood transfusions. A few weeks into his treatment, a new set of scans showed no concern about his lungs and he was downgraded to Stage 1.

Since his scans in February, no sign of cancer has been found. He completed chemo in June and is strong and healthy today.
The boy enjoys learning new songs and painting in Kindergarten. He loves Legos, cars and trucks, fire trucks, playing with friends and digging in the dirt.

The family is planning a trip to Legoland California. The boy wants to drive the cars and get his Legoland Driver’s License.
Frick and Hopkins held a number of fundraisers, such as a cupcake drive, a Miracle Minute, raffles, T-shirt sales and donation events.

They hosted a Make-A-Swish Night on January 16 at Washington High School during a girls and boys basketball double-header, where they raised money for their project. See the photos below, courtesy of the Washington Missourian.


The Washington Police Department donated approximately $1,000 from their No-Shave November fundraiser to a Make-A-Wish Foundation project, spearheaded by Washington High School DECA members Jessica Frick and Emmy Hopkins, who raised money to help send a local cancer patient and his family to Legoland California.

Campbellton Elementary School held a “Shining Moment Lunch,” on Thursday, Jan. 18, where students were nominated by teachers and other staff members for displaying excellent behavior inside and outside of the classroom during school days.

The students may be nominated for having a “shining moment,” such as helping other students, exhibiting positive behavior, or just by displaying their overall actions in a positive manner. 

Six students were recognized for the month of January. They received a certificate, a call home to their parents on why they were recognized and a group lunch with the principal and the other recipients.

Campbellton Principal Jennifer Meyer was unable to make the January lunch. Filling in for her was Campbellton second-grade teacher Jennifer Volkerding.  

Lion’s Choice restaurant in Washington provided the lunch free of charge, and delivered it to Campbellton Elementary.

Students recognized at the “Shining Moment Lunch” on Thursday, Jan. 18, were Nathan Kuhn, Elaina Kimminau, Chloe Mueller, Toby Brant, Blake Voss and Jordan Bennick.

Incumbents Kevin Blackburn and John Freitag were the only two individuals who filed for the School District of Washington’s Board of Education during the filing period December 12 to January 16.

The current three-year terms for Blackburn and Freitag are up in 2018, which created two open seats.

The fact that they were the only two to file means there will not be a school board election on the April 3 ballot.

Blackburn and Freitag will begin new three-year terms and will be sworn in during the Board of Education’s reorganization meeting April 12 at 7:30 a.m.

Blackburn, who was first elected to the Board in 2012, currently is serving as president.

Freitag, who was first elected to the Board in 2015, currently is serving as vice president.
