57 Minute Miracle at Plymouth High School: Making a Miracle Happen


Plymouth High School guidance counselor Aimee Portteus is helping us make a 57 Minute Miracle happen by surprising one of her students.

Portteus named Elizabeth Northcutt when we asked her who could use $570.

“I’ve been working with her, and I know she has some outstanding needs, and this would help her get some things that she needs to have,” said Portteus.

So, we followed her upstairs to surprise her outside of her classroom.

Northcutt was completely shocked—to the point of being speechless.

Northcutt, however, is used to being out of breath.

She has asthma and has gone an entire year without an inhaler.

On top of that, she suffers from depression.

Northcutt says this little miracle completely made her day.

“It kind of actually makes me feel grateful that I was picked for something, because here I am practically a loner my whole life, not being chosen for anything, talked to or nothing, and then I got chosen for something, and it’s just mind-blowing to me,” said Northcutt.

She plans to use the money to first buy an inhaler, and second, pay for college. She’ll be graduating in 2017.
