BETHLEHEM, N.H. (AP) — Universal Studios is donating a free vacation to all 42 seniors graduating from a New Hampshire high school after the class donated funds for a class trip to their principal, who was diagnosed with cancer.

The Caledonian Record reports (http://bit.ly/1D8QAcx ) the Class of 2015 at Bethlehem's Profile School gave $8,000 to Principal Courtney Vashaw in May. The students spent several years raising money for their class trip but decided it would be better off going to Vashaw to help with her medical treatments.

As word spread of the seniors' selfless act, other people donated funds to help the principal.

In return for the students' compassionate act Universal Studios is offering to pay for their airfare and hotel accommodations to take a trip to the Orlando, Florida, theme park in August.
