MARMADUKE, AR (KAIT) - One Make-A-Wish student received the surprise of a lifetime Tuesday afternoon.

Students at Marmaduke High School invited Make-A-Wish student Dayton to a pet show to help raise money for the FFA Club.

After the pets were paraded around the gym at an assembly, Dayton's pet was selected by judges as the best pet.

The school mascot then appeared and told Dayton his wish to go to Disney World had been granted.

Dayton and his family plan to soak up the sun at Disney World at the end of this month.
