GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. – Allie Zuppo got a surprise on her way home Monday afternoon.
Family, friends, and classmates lined the street near her home holding signs reading "Welcome Back Allie" and "Allie Strong." They cheered as a fire truck and police escort preceded before her.
"She kind of freaked out at first, she goes ‘oh no, what is all this,’ and I said, ‘you deserve it,’" said Meredith Zuppo, Allie's mother.
