Watch: York High’s skydiving principal keeps her word

York High School’s principal kept her promise.

Principal Shannon Butler of York High School went skydiving Saturday as part of a fundraising campaign.

In February, Butler told seniors Nicholas Searcy and Nichole Springhorn she would jump out of a plane if they raised more than $15,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Using Butler’s pledge to encourage donations, Springhorn and Searcy raised $20,000.

True to her word, Butler made the jump at Skydive Suffolk Saturday. She also landed safely before a cheering crowd.

For their efforts, Searcy and Springhorn were named Virginia Students of the Year by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Virginia chapter.
