PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — In this week’s “I Am Hampton Roads” on The Hampton Roads Show, it’s all about the kids. We met some pretty amazing ones at Linkhorn Park Elementary in Virginia Beach.
Emma, Adeline and Marissa went on a field trip to “Operation Smile’s” Headquarters in Virginia Beach, and then couldn’t stop thinking about the children with facial deformities that needed their help.
So they decided to start a “Smile Club” at their school, asked their teacher to be their sponsor and then had to pitch their plan to the principal for the official go ahead. Now they want other kids to know that you don’t have to be all grown up to make a difference.
Thanks to Linkhorn Park Elementary School principal Barbara Sessoms for letting us know about that wonderful story.
