High school in the States for Iris!

We have been working on it for years and it is finally happening! Iris was approved for her student visa and will heading stateside in August to spend her junior year at Fort Dale Academy in Greenville, AL. My parents, Lucy and Jim McGowin are gracious enough to host her.

For those of you who dont know Iris, she is an amazing 17 year old from Scotland Halfmoon Village in Belize. She works hard and studies hard, always helping at home and always coming in at the top of her class. She is quiet but personable and ecstatic about this opportunity!

We have been able to cover all the expenses so far, but a few things remain and any help we can get would be more than appreciated! We need to get her flights booked, exchange student health insurance for the duration of her stay, school uniforms and supplies. 

Thank you thank you thank you all for helping us help Iris! This opportunity will change her life and it would not be possible without you!
