TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - One 11-year old got his wish granted, just in time for Christmas.
Casey Hatchett wanted to go to Disney World.
So, the Tupelo Christian Preparatory School's Make-A-Wish committee, which is made up of middle and high school students, raised money all year long to make Hatchett's wish come true.
Fundraisers included a snack store, selling biscuits, a Christmas store and competitive fundraisers between grades.
His grandmother, Susan Hudson, said Hatchett had three bad years fighting leukemia. She said Wednesday's event was awesome.
Hatchett is a weather fanatic, and students surprised him during a staged storm spotter training session at the school.
Helping out with the surprise was WTVA Chief Meteorologist Matt Laubhan.
