A 2016 graduate of Hononegah High School got a pretty sweet surprise from Ellen Degeneres recently, but it's what happened after that really got my water works flowing.

Please excuse my stalker moment here, but if I could be a super famous entertainer and celebrity I would want to be just like Ellen Degeneres. She's down-to-Earth, kind hearted, extremely giving, and all around amazing. She does so much good with her celebrity status, and I just want to be her best friend.

Anywho, Hononegah grad Courtney Larsen recently got the experience of a lifetime on The Ellen Show when she was chosen for a pretty awesome surprise with a little help from Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell...

(Fast forward to about the 2:30 minute mark to see Courtney, but be sure to watch until the end for the super-duper surprise)



Congratulations to all three winners, and God Bless You, Ellen for changing lives on a daily basis.
