r By Lauren BushrSeventeen-year-old Olivia lives in the Nebo School District boundaries and suffers from a rare disease called Baraitser-Winter Syndrome. The students and faculty at Salem Hills High School have participated in Make-a-Wish fundraisers for the last ten years and this year they were going to make Olivia’s wish of going to Disney World come true.

“Some of the students know her and I think that helped make it more personal,” Principal Bart Peery explained.

Over the course of a week, the school raised over $17,000 through various activities including a movie night, t-shirt sales, and a performance with BYU Vocal Point, although much of the money was raised simply from passing a jar around the classrooms. Principal Peery also added incentive by agreeing to shave his head if they surpassed $10,000.

Principal Peery noted that this yearly activity helps students to work towards a good cause and think about others.

“It really helps us get to where we don’t think about ourselves as much. This year the student council did such a wonderful job setting the tone and our students really rose to the occasion to give to another.”
