Shoshanna Williamson is a second grader starting her school year at Pellston Schools.

Before the school was back up and running, it managed to raise $ 600 by returning cans collected across the community. “Well, I thought there wasn’t enough money for school, so I wanted to do it because we’re not rich,” Shosanna said.

$ 300 also goes to the school shop where students can pick up school supplies. “Not surprising as we’ve seen Shoshanna’s character like this since kindergarten,” said Tammy Vanantwerp, principal of Pellston Elementary School. “She is a bright light in the world.”

Shoshanna’s teacher, Mrs. Saddison, received $ 200 for her room. “It’s amazing,” she said. “It was very selfless of her and very thoughtful. She is just an inspiration and I was overwhelmed and have never experienced anything like it as a teacher. “

Shoshanna also donated $ 100 to the art room to get all of the materials it needed.
