Pueblo County High School has done it again! DECA has set up a fundraiser and helped little Jayzon’s wish come true. Jayzon’s wish was to become a Jedi therefore, the goal was for Pueblo County High School to raise enough money to send Jayzon to Walt Disney World to become a Jedi. He was diagnosed with a tumor behind his right eye and him being only 5 years old, Pueblo County High School has taken it upon themselves to help this little boys’ wish come true. DECA starts by asking local businesses and setting up an online fundraiser. DECA also set up penny stalls, students would bring as much pennies as you can and give them to their third hour teachers. Teachers would not be allowed to start class until all money was counted, and finally we had the Miracle Minute. The miracle minute happens at the Make-A-Wish assembly, students try to put as much money as they can into baskets, in hopes of making the most money between the four classes. Before the assembly, DECA and student council helps set up some games, for the student body to have a little bit of fun. Unfortunately, Jayzon and his family did not make it due to COVID-19. So DECA has sent out a video of the students chanting “WE LOVE JAYZON” and received a video back of Jayzon thanking Pueblo County High School. In the end Pueblo County Highschool raised $15,295.86 to send little Jayzon to Walt Disney World and make his wish come true. Granting wishes is just something that Pueblo County High School does!
