MRH Alum Surprises Sister at School
If this video doesn't make you pick up the phone and call someone you miss, nothing will.
The fella holding the flower arrangement is 2017 MRH grad Ethan Powell, and the young lady doing jumping jacks is his sister, 8th-grader Ellen Powell. Ethan doesn't get home much, having enlisted in the army just a few days after graduation. Today, he made the trip from Ft. Irwin in California to the Maplewood Richmond Heights gymnasium to surprise his sib.
The best part is, according to mother Tonya Powell, he gets to stay through Christmas day!
(We love how principal Mike Dittrich almost got his camera smashed by the other girl in the gym class!)
