On September 11, 2019 I visited
the Morning Star School for the
disabled to deliver a school supply
drive that I organized as seen on
the photo here.
I was received very well by the
students and staff and one of the
asks I had was for the students to
tell me what are the dreams they
want to achieve.
One of the dreams was something
that would be of benefit to all
students so I started working on
getting the base required for that
"I want to become a storm chaser in Texas!"
I am creating a campaign to provide
Christopher with a roadmap for his dream
and, at the same time, provide the students
with important information.
I would like to bring the Texas Storm
Chasers who would provide a class on
extreme weather to all the students and
define a roadmap that Christopher can use
to turn his dream to reality.
"If you can dream it, you can do it!"
On September 23, 2020,
Christopher came one step closer
to his dream! I was able to raise
enough funds to bring a class on
Extreme Weater from the Texas
Storm Chasers to Christopher and
his class at Morning Star school.
The class was delivered over Zoom
and according to the Texas Storm
Chasers, it was the first class that
they delivered outside of Texas.
In the meantime, I was supporting
the Morning Star School with my
regular school supplies drive and it
was so successful that I had to
deliver it twice. The photo on the
right shows the first delivery on
August 17, 2020.
I am in the photo with Principal
Elaine Shott and the team that
worked on funding and gathering
the school supplies. There were
several additional contributors but it
is impossible to post them all here.
In 2021 I had another idea. I
wanted to bring Christopher even
closer to his dream so I contacted
the Chief Metereologist at Action
News JAX, Mr. Mike Buresh, who
accepted to meet with Christopher
I was really excited for this
opportunity and so were the
Morning Star School, through
Principal Elaine Shott and
The meeting will be over Zoom and
it was setup for April 29. We will
post photos soon after this great
moment for Christopher al all of us.
