Bishop Hall Charter School ninth grader Zyannah Gosier recently asked Principal Dr. Verna Wiggins for permission to do something kind and generous for a fellow student. Dr. Wiggins set out to find someone who was worthy to receive a memorable gift.
Dr. Wiggins chose an outstanding young man who represents the great qualities of a Bishop Hall student. Jacameron Samuel, an eighth grader, was the lucky one chosen to receive two Wild Adventures tickets from his classmate. Gosier believes that giving to others is more important than receiving. As an employee of Wild Adventures, Gosier was thrilled to be able to do something special for someone.
Samuel was in shock when he found out. He was overwhelmed with excitement and shared his news with other students. The two students did not know each other, yet they shook hands and were very happy.
Dr. Wiggins said, "We are a family and even students realize that. Jacameron was very appreciative and continued to thank me for selecting him as the deserving student of the month.”
Bishop Hall teacher Dr. Retha Lee was there to witness the transaction and was brought to tears by the simple kindness of others.
“Bishop Hall is truly a family,” Lee said. “The smiles say it all.”
