MECHANICVILLE- It was a great surprise at Mechanicville Elementary on Wednesday.
Amanda Pellegrin is an airman in the U.S. Air Force, serving with the 109th Airlift Wing in Glenville.
After four months in Antarctica, she surprised her niece, Austyn Lashway.
This is the longest "Aunt Mandy" and Austyn have been apart.
Mom called the teacher to help arrange the surprise.
