NEWPORT, Ark. — Family and friends crowded into Sonic’s parking lot in Newport last Friday to watch the wish of a local teenager be granted. Tuckerman High School student Destyn Drake thought he was going to Sonic to order dinner when he was greeted by Sonic employees carrying balloons and a banner that said, “Your Wish Has Been Granted.” Drake, 13, was then surrounded by family and friends when two representatives from the Make-A-Wish Foundation announced that he was being granted his wish for a camper trailer.
“I like the camper a lot and was surprised,” Destyn said Saturday. “Make-A-Wish is awesome and the people are very nice. I’m glad that a lot of people showed up. It made me feel thankful.“
