Jenna Greenfield, a student at Braden River Middle School, really wanted to go to Hershey World, Pa., for her 12th birthday. It made sense because her family would be vacationing in Washington, D.C., on that date.
But, how to sell it to the parents? Greenfield put together a PowerPoint presentation for mom and dad, Kathleen and Gordon Greenfield. Jenna got her wish, and the Greenfield clan got to visit Amish Country and Gettysburg (dad is a Civil War buff) as well as chocolate heaven and the nation’s capital.
