Wish Comes True with Help from the CIA

Emily Coker The CIA recently worked with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help a young lady realize a lifelong dream. Emily Coker, 15, of Perry, FL has been fighting chronic kidney disease for most of her life, while at the same time hoping to someday become a CIA student.

The Northern and Central Florida Chapter of Make-A-Wish Foundation granted Emily's wish, by treating her and her family to an all-expense paid trip to New York City, including a Broadway show and dinner at the famed Aureole, courtesy of Charlie Palmer '79. She also came up to the Hudson Valley for a tour of the CIA and even took part in a few classes and attended a graduation as a special guest of President Tim Ryan. Before leaving campus Emily told Dr. Ryan that she plans to beat her illness and return to the CIA as a student.
