FLORENCE- A legacy of giving came full circle in Florence Wednesday, as high school students came together to honor the legacy of a former assistant principal while making one child’s dreams come true.

Members of West Florence High School’s student government began a fundraising campaign on Dec. 1, to collect money to grant the wish of five-year-old Grace Dixon.

Representatives from the Make-A-Wish Foundation asked officials at the school if they would like to help grant the wish of Dixon, who suffers from Spinal Muscular Atrophy.

The condition causes progressive muscle degeneration and weakness.

Grace’s mother, Robin, said she was very surprised when she found out that her child’s wish would be granted through the generosity of other young people.

“It was very heartwarming and amazing,” Robin Dixon said.
