Former Elkins student receives surprise from Batman

The WV Caring Staff, Elkins High School staff and students, Elkins Police and Mayor came together to honor a wish  for Austin Van Pelt, an 18 year-old patient of ours.  Austin wanted to ride a bus to Elkins High School to visit some of his former classmates; but it did not stop there.  The Bat Signal came on and Batman drove in his Batmobile from Huntington, WV’s Gotham City, to see Austin and lead a Hope Rally with the entire student body and to help raise funds for Austin’s family.
