VSU reaches out to Coffee High Seniors

April 29, 2008

Valdosta - Some fun is in the futures of those Coffee High School students whose senior trip was apparently nothing more than a rip off.

Their substitute teacher, 39 year-old Christy Wise is charged with taking their money for a trip to Disney world, but not booking the trip.

The story inspired Valdosta State to do something.

The school is setting up for their first student, faculty and staff luau Tuesday.

And they extended an invitation to cheer up the seniors who were out a trip and their money.

"The excitement for them to come on campus now is huge. The sheriff's department will escort them in because they are our heroes. We can't bring Disney to them but we sure can make them have a lot of fun on our campus," says Jimmy Fields, event coordinator.

The students will arrive with a police escort.  The event will have games, entertainment, food and tropical drinks.
