"As soon as you explained it, I said, 'Let me get right on it. We would love to be able to accomodate that.' Our students come away learning from something so special like this," Principal Snyder said.
A son's prayer was answered.
"Looking over there seeing him smiling meant more to me than anything really," Kyle Woods said.
A mom's fear was calmed.
"It's a lot going through your mind, knowing he's not going to be here much longer but he did get his wish to be able to see it," Denise Harvill said.
Harville is Kyle's mother and Greg Woods' ex-wife. She and her husband have been caring for Greg Woods in their home.
"When the hospice nurse came out, she said she wouldn't give him two weeks but its been three weeks and I can see each day he's going down more and more." Denise Harvill said.
Thanks to the quick thinking and hard work of the staff and students at Mortimer Jordan High School, a father's dying wish was granted.
"Words really can't describe how I'm feeling right now. Extremely happy. Extremely happy," Greg Woods said.
The school videotaped the ceremony so that Kyle can go back and watch it in the future.
