A Wilmot Elementary fourth-grader has taught fellow students they can make a difference in the lives of others. She taught herself that one person can move a school to do special things.
Kileigh Ackerman, 9, encouraged students to make blankets for patients at Children’s Hospital in Aurora. The kids made 40 blankets at a Friday afternoon blanket-making party recently.
Last week, she and a friend, along with Kileigh’s mom, Deidre, and principal, Matt Cormier, went to the hospital to drop off the donations.
