East Islip High School freshman Kaylee Norton was honored by Superintendent John Dolan at the East Islip School District’s Feb. 13 Board of Education meeting for collecting 1,688 “Letters to Santa” for the Macy’s Make-A-Wish Foundation. She plans to take on her remarkable charity effort again next December.
“She’s a fantastic young lady who I think is going to change the world,” Dolan said.
