Making a 91 Year Old's Wish Come True

GroupMtRushmoreJordan, Emily, Nicholas and the Whole Group Who Went to Mount Rushmore.3 St. Mary’s students helped make a wish come true.  Jordan Roberts and Emily and Nicholas Summers were with 91-year-old Ruth Lightbody as she checked off Mt. Rushmore and the Black Hills of South Dakota off her “bucket list” this summer. The 3 students volunteered to help take her on the trip.  They have been working with the residents of Mable Rose Estates, where Lightbody resides, for years. Lisa Summers, Mable Rose Activity Director, says the 3 students really know older folks.   On the trip, the three helped carry luggage, get the residents in and out of cars and knocked on hotel doors at mealtime. The trip totaled 15 people including 3 generations of the two students’ families.
