WAOW.com: Students at Wausau East High are changing the life of one of the school custodians.
Chong Lee is a custodian at the school.
He lost his arm during the Vietnam War when he was just 5-years-old. Earlier this year, the Youth Culture Club began fundraising to buy him a prosthetic.
He’s been using it for months now, changing how he does even the most simple tasks.
“We saw a need, and Mr. Lee is a really wonderful man,” said George Hagge, the club’s faculty advisor.
It’s a cause the students feel close to.
“He’s worked countless hours, worked super hard and we thought about him and then we wanted to give back to him,” said Fong Moua, a Wausau East High School senior.
