A teacher in awe when his straight-A student wanted to give his bonus-points to the one with the lowest score in Class.
A straight-A student from Letcher County Central High School in Kentucky wrote on the bottom of his test: “If you could, can you give my bonus points to whoever scored the lowest?”
His history teacher named Winston Lee, said: “Most honor students cling to every point possible.” Because of this, this small act made him want to share it with the world. “Had to shout this out, had honestly never seen this.” He wrote on his Facebook page.
“One of my guys, a straight A+ guy, offers up his 5 bonus points to someone in need. Anyone. Totally offering up what is rightfully his, his earning, to any peer that may have been struggling especially hard the day of the test,” Lee wrote.
“He didn’t care if he considered them a friend, didn’t care if they were cool, didn’t matter to him what situation had caused them to score lower, he just wanted to help, be kind, commit a loving act. This note gave me so much hope. Let us all be a little more like this young man!!”
The history teacher said he had never before had a request like this, and because of it he honored the request. As a result, the person with the lowest score was lifted to a passing grade.
“I was pleasantly surprised. He is the type of kid that would often show compassion in the classroom,” Lee said.
