A Wish Come True

On Thursday Gilbert High Schooler, Amy Stanton was granted a “She Shed” made by her fellow classmates. The Gilbert High shop class worked Make-A-Wish to make this “She Shed” not knowing it was for Amy.

Amy was Diagnosed with a brain tumor and has put up a strong fight for a couple years. She has never let anything dull her shine. She has had two brain surgeries and continues to fight. This “She Shed” will be used as a cozy place for Amy to reflect and have a place for herself.

Thank you to our Building Trade class teacher, Danny Jones, Ames Home Builders Association, and Make-A-Wish for making this wish a reality.
