Emma Rose Lewis was a student at Westlake in her middle school years.
She came back for a visit today, and to pick up a box of get well cards the youngsters there made for Operation Recovering Hero.
Emma will deliver the cards to Walter Reed Hospital to be delivered to service men and women who are recovering from injuries.
She met with current Westlake students and was happy to be back at the school.
Operation Recovering Hero is the service project Emma has adopted for her project at the National Miss Teen USA Pageant.
