Central Gwinnett High School Reveals its Magic Wheelchair

     Lawrenceville, Ga., October 25, 2017 – For the third year in a row, Central Gwinnett High School is partnering with Magic Wheelchair to build an EPIC costume for a Gwinnett County child. Magic Wheelchair is a non-profit organization with a mission to put a smile on the face of every child in a wheelchair. Each costume “build” involves numerous volunteers and countless hours to create. The final projects are truly amazing. With these epic creations, kids who often feel left out during the Trick-or-Treat season feel like a King or Queen! 

     This year’s recipient is Harper Jackson, a student at Simonton Elementary School. “This is so exciting. We have never had this opportunity for any of our children so we can't thank you enough for doing this for our little Harper,” said Michelle Jackson, Harper’s mother. 

     “We knew we wanted to make this day as special as possible for Harper so we pulled out all the stops in our design,” said Michael Tarver, the Technical Theatre teacher at Central Gwinnett who is taking the lead on the build. “This gave our students the unique challenge of building something with lights, and motors, and sound effects.” 

     The reveal event will take place during Central Gwinnett’s annual “Safe Trick-or-Treat.” The event will feature tables of candy as well as family-friendly games and activities. Children in 5th grade and younger who are accompanied by an adult may Trick-or-Treat all around the Black Knight Football Field.

     Join Central Gwinnett on Harper’s special day when her Magic Wheelchair is revealed!
