I want you to meet Haley Webb—an 8th-grade student at Missouri’s Bingham Middle School. She can empathize with kids in a military family because Haley is one. She rarely sees her dad because he’s been on duty for a very long time.
At her school’s veteran day performance, she was given the prestigious honor of introducing the day’s special guest.
She doesn’t think much of it at first. It seemed like a relatively simple task for Haley, who is accustomed to being on stage. Right before she made the introduction, she accompanied the school band in serenading the audience of students, teachers, and parents.
The introduction was specifically written for her to read and it contained details about the special guest. While reading, Haley found that there was something particularly strange about it.
She then realizes what is happening and starts to cry. It was all part of an elaborate scheme by her teachers, but Haley was incredibly overjoyed by it. See how it all went down in the video above.
