Gackle girl’s wish comes true: Teen swims with dolphins as part of a Make-A-Wish expedition

Email

GACKLE, N.D. — A wish came true for Gackle teen Jeanette Hess recently when she swam with dolphins in Hawaii on a birthday expedition funded by Make-a-Wish North Dakota.

“I’m a major animal lover, and I’ve always found dolphins interesting,” Hess said. “How they act — it reminds me of little kids.”

Hess, who turned 18 during her trip, is a senior attending Gackle-Streeter Public School. She lives with her grandparents, Betty and John Hess.
