Twilight Wish is pleased to announce the appointment of Sunee Fleshman as director of the newly-formed Indiana chapter of Twilight Wish Foundation. A recent graduate of the University of Notre Dame and an alumnae of St. Mary’s College, Fleshman, 23, was very involved with campus ministry and often performed music at masses for the Sisters of the Holy Cross who reside on campus. Fleshman grew close to many of the women there, especially Sister Marilla Dyer, 92. For Sister Marilla’s birthday last September, Fleshman surprised her with a ticket to the Notre Dame-Purdue football game and pushed her in a wheelchair all the way from St. Mary’s to Notre Dame to attend the game.
“It was one of the best days of my life,” said Fleshman. “And, it inspired me to want to grant wishes for the elderly.” However, as a busy college student, Fleshman had no idea how she could manage, much less afford, such an ambitious endeavor until she was crowned Miss Collegiate North in March. Her platform, “Shining Light through Twilight,” provides her the opportunity to help those seniors who have inspired her throughout her life. As chapter director, Fleshman will be making wishes come true for deserving seniors in Indiana, making our world a nicer place to age.
