BELDEN, Miss. (WTVA) -- It's a dream come true for one Lee County child.

Five-year-old Katie Knight is going to Disney World.

Students at Tupelo Christian Preparatory School raised more than $5,000 for Katie who is now a "Make-A-Wish" child.

Katie loves a Walt Disney princess and she became one Thursday.

Students gave she and other girls a manicure.

Following a little spa treatment, Katie was escorted to a stage where she found out about her upcoming trip to Disney.

"She has been through a lot as a child and we just want to make her feel like a princess today," student Hannah Henry said.

"It's very special to me because we are a "Make-A-Wish" family. We have received a wish and so it's always good to give back," teacher Carole Pollock said.

Katie was born with severe complications that required numerous surgeries.
