A Wish come true

Fifteen-year-old Zackrie’s dream to visit Atlantis Paradise Island, a resort in the Bahamas, came true when the S&T athletics department and Chi Omega fraternity helped Make-A-Wish Missouri grant his wish. Zackrie has a condition that led to kidney failure and a recent kidney transplant. Make-A-Wish Foundation is the official charity of NCAA Division II and its national Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, and is Chi Omega’s national philanthropy of choice.
