You never know when you are making a difference, inspiring someone to be a better person – moreover, you may be surprised about how they come back to repay you in later years.
The staff at Lindley Elementary School in Greensboro, North Carolina experienced this repayment with gratitude when a former student gifted every employee a well-deserved vacation destination with their family.
The anonymous student, who became an adult and launched their own travel agency, donated dozens of travel vouchers that can be redeemed for 7-days of lodging anywhere in the continental US.
The gift is worth roughly $96,000.
When WFMY reported the story, the student’s identity was not revealed, but Lindley Elementary principal Tracy Roof says that surprising the staff with the vouchers was a moment that she “will never, ever forget.”
